    This sounds fascinating, ever since reading Sir Gregor MacGregor and the Land That Never Was, it’s been a bit of a passion for this type of thing. Albeit this fictional account goes deeper into the character’s than a history book would do, it is great to get a different perspective. This one is on the wishlist.

    • I look forward to reading what you make of it. It certainly gave me the impression of being wonderfully researched, so you get the historical facts as well as the emotional impact of great fiction.
      I’ve never read any non-fiction about this colonising period of America’s history, but The Land that Never Was sounds inspiring. I can see it making its way onto a future non-fiction reading list…
