Back cover text:

The Scotland of the past and the Scotland of the future. That is the essence of A Passion for Scotland, and its author David Ross takes the reader on an ardent journey through the story of this country, which stirs the primal fires from the opening lines. It is a personal, patriotic yet unbiased view of the path the Scots have taken, and of the path they are trying to forge into the 21st century, and is fascinating and moving by turns. 

It provides a wealth of material on Scotland, from history through to politics through to travel. But it is also an impassioned call to his fellow countrymen. Inside this book you will find out about Wallace and Bruce, Montrose, the Jacobites, John McLean, and Tartan Day USA. You will discover what makes a Scot. 

Plus, revealed for the first time, details of the final resting places of all Scotland's kings and queens.


Reviews:

Ross writes with an immediacy, a dynamism, that makes his subjects come alive on the page.  Dundee Courier

The biker historian's unique combination of unabashed romanticism and easy irreverence make him the ideal guide to historical subjects all too easily either swallowed up in maudlin sentiment or demythologised by the academic studies.  The Scotsman
