James MacPherson : The Highland Freebooter
Based on a true life story, James MacPherson (1675-1700) was a noted Scottish-Gypsy outlaw, a "Cateran of the Highland Glens." However, little is known of his short, perilous life. Like Robin Hood, folklore has it that he was a dangerous adversary to those who sought revenge for his raids, yet he was a remarkable heroic character to many others for his generosity of giving spoils to the less fortunate. No cruel act of harm was ever charged against him. He was the last person in Scotland to be executed under the Heritage Jurisdiction Act. The author, J. Gordon Phillips has penned an entertaining semi-fictional account of James MacPherson's life based on historic documents and legend. Classical novel elements of love, hate, war, peace and the struggle for personal freedom are woven throughout the story of James MacPherson, who excelled with sword and fiddle.
