This is an auction for THE LION IN THE NORTH: ONE THOUSAND YEARS OF SCOTLAND'S HISTORY by John Prebble. reviews:

"The best single-volume history of the Scottish nation, THE LION IN THE NORTH covers the full sweep of Scottish history from the time of the Picts and Romans, to Robert the Bruce, the Reformation, Montrose, the Jacobites and the Highland Clearances. Told in the gripping and lucid style we have come to expect from John Prebble - the man who helped the Scots to rediscover their own past!"

"The history of Scotland reads like a Hollywood script. Starting with the pre-Celtic people called the Picts and ending in modern time, Prebble does a superb job of walking us through the array of peoples that make up the modern Scot. If you love this beautiful land you'll devour this book as if it was a novel."

"John Prebble (1915-2001) was an author and historian who is best known for his Scottish histories, and for his screenplay for the 1964 movie, Zulu. In this interesting book, Prebble's magnum opus, the author follows the course of Scottish history from earliest times, through to the clearances of the early- to mid-nineteenth century. Along the way, the reader is treated to many black-and-white pictures and maps. Overall, I found this to be a very good history. Now, as you might expect with a book that covers some 2000 years of history, some subjects are covered in more detail than others. But, that said, this book does cover a lot! It is a good book, encyclopedic in reach, that is sure to please anyone interested in Scottish history."
