Tales of the Wars of Montrose is a big book about a big historical period, and it positions Hogg strongly in the line of historical writers who require to be taken seriously.

(Ian Campbell Notes & Queries)

Displays a... delight in literary form... the opening narrative exploring the relationship between literature and history, truth and fiction, while also creating a foundation for the subsequent tales of romantic intrigue, Ossianic tragedy, adventure and vendetta all over Scotland.

(Fiona Stafford Review of English Studies)

A necessary and commendable effort to present... [Hogg's] entire corpus in a welcome research edition.

(Rhona Brown Scotia 1900-01-00)
