Andrew Fisher was born in Scotland and now works and lives there as archivist to the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry, KT, and as administrator of Drumlanrig Castle. He is the author of the biography of William Wallace ("the best of Sir William's many biographers"--Dr. Fiona Watson, University of Stirling) and is a regular contributor to magazines, radio, and television on Scottish history.Review:
Andrew Fisher's A Traveller's History Of Scotland explains the roots of Scottish history beginning with the Celts, Scotland's first people and their culture. There were centuries of kingdoms and pragmatic struggles for power that saw the coming of the Vikings in 900AD, leading to ever more conflict and cultural changes up through the turbulent years of Mary Queen of Scots, the Calvinistic legacy of Knox, and the bitterness of final defeat at the hands of the English invaders. Scotland then entered an age of industry and despoliation, the result was substantial emigrant and an obsession with the nation's past which glorified the legends of the Highlander and the Clans. The 20th century saw a resurgences of national pride and a political movement for independence that is still going on today. A Traveller's History Of Scotland is a very good history, soundly researched, and ably written. -- Midwest Book Review
