Synopsis : The acclaimed definitive history of the outlaws and "Border lords" who reigned on the contentious frontier between England and Scotland for three hundred years.
Note de l'éditeur: From the late 13th century to the middle of the 16th, war and peace were not very different for the people of the borderlands between England and Scotland, where feud and terror, raid and reprisal, blackmail and blood oaths were the everyday stuff of life. Wielding the narrative genius of a great storyteller, Fraser chronicles Border history, vividly depicting the "guerrilla" lives and strenuous times of the merciless "Reivers" who made lawlessness the "custom of the country." This fascinating work of history is irresistibly compelling-- and thrilling too.
