Om boka

Purchase one of 1st World Library's Classic Books and help support our
free internet library of downloadable e-books. If you ever read this tale, you
will likely ask yourself more questions than I should care to answer: as for
instance how the Appin murder has come to fall in the year 1751, how the Torran
rocks have crept so near to Earraid, or why the printed trial is silent as to
all that touches David Balfour. These are nuts beyond my ability to crack. But
if you tried me on the point of Alan's guilt or innocence, I think I could
defend the reading of the text. To this day you will find the tradition of
Appin clear in Alan's favour. If you inquire, you may even hear that the
descendants of "the other man" who fired the shot are in the country to this
day. But that other man's name, inquire as you please, you shall not hear; for
the Highlander values a secret for itself and for the congenial exercise of
keeping it I might go on for long to justify one point and own another
indefensible; it is more honest to confess at once how little I am touched by
the desire of accuracy.

This is no furniture for the scholar's
library, but a book for the winter evening school-room when the tasks are over
and the hour for bed draws near; and honest Alan, who was a grim old fire-eater
in his day has in this new avatar no more desperate purpose than to steal some
young gentleman's attention from his Ovid, carry him awhile into the Highlands
and the last century, and pack him to bed with some engaging images to mingle
with his dreams.
