Description

Known better for his novel-length work, Sir Walter Scott nevertheless wrote a few short stories. This volume consist of three of Scott's tragic short stories: "The Highland Widow," a tale of Elspat, the widow of MacTavish Mhor, one of the last of the Highland mauraders, and her ill-fated attempt to have her son follow in her husband's footsteps; "The Two Drovers," the story of a dispute between a Highland drover and his Yorkshire companion; and "The Surgeon's Daughter," a tale of a wife, lured to India by her husband to help further his ambitions and greed. The first two are generally thought to be his best work in short fiction.

Author Biography

Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet with many contemporary readers in Europe, Australia and North America. Scott's novels and poetry are still read and many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature. Famous titles include Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, Old Mortality, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor. Although primarily remembered for his extensive literary works and his political engagement, Scott was an advocate, judge and legal administrator by profession and throughout his career combined his writing and editing work with his daily occupation as Clerk of Session and Sheriff-Depute of Selkirkshire.
