Product Description

Details

Leonard Low turns his attention to the Fife village of Largo and uncovers dark secrets buried in dusty tomes from bygone years. He tells of Pictish inhabitants and rampaging Roman invaders whose relics have been destroyed and all but forgotten. He brings to life one of Scotland's great unsung naval heroes, Admiral Sir Andrew Wood. Leonard Low has previously written about Pittenweem's witch trials in his book The Weem Witch. Now he devotes a chapter to ill-fated residents of Largo who were caught up in the witch terror. A diary kept by a seventeenth-century local offers surprising insights. Largo's Untold Stories reveals little-known facts about Alexander Selkirk, the castaway who inspired Robinson Crusoe. Low writes about a forgotten maritime disaster off Scotland's west coast. Finally, he writes about body-snatching and the ill-fated Franklin expedition to discover the North-West Passage round Canada.
