David Sempill is being torn apart. Young and idealistic, his loyalty to his King conflicts with his Covenanting sympathies, which are, in turn, tested by the brutality he witnesses towards Montrose’s beaten army. When black magic is uncovered in the ancient Witch Wood, as a man of God he must fight it, but his love for the beautiful, pagan Katrine and the religious extremism of the time puts him at the centre of a deadly spiral.

Buchan’s favourite novel – and an inspiration for the young C.S. Lewis – is a terrifying portrait of a cruel and intolerant age.

With an introduction by Allan Massie.

This edition is authorised by the John Buchan Society.
