1906. Sir Walter Scott was a master of diverse talents. He was a man of letters, a dedicated historian and historiographer, a well-read translator of foreign texts, and a talented poet. Deriving most of his material from his native Scotland, its history and its legends, Scott invented and mastered what we know today as the historical novel. The central theme of this story is the contention between the Catholic and Reformist faiths. It is set in a distant Catholic monastery at the end of a haunted canyon. The central figure of the book is the fiercely Catholic Sub-Prior Eustace of the monastery. His old school friend, a devout Reformist minister appears later in the book to dispute the falsity of the Catholic faith. See the many other works by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
