Product Description

Publisher: Birlinn

Author: Ronald Williams

'Sons of the Wolf' and 'Children of the Mist' were names given to the Gregarach or Clan Gregor after they were driven from their ancestral glens and forced to live as 'broken men' or outlaws. In sixteenth century Scotland, clans held their lands more by power of sword than by written title, but in the latter half of the century the pattern of ownership began to change. The powerful and fiercely ambitious Clan Campbell embarked on a period of acquisitive expansion. (pb)
