of the Wolf" and "Children of the Mist" were names
given to the Gregarach or Clan Gregor after they were driven from
their ancestral glens and forced to live as "broken men"
or outlaws. In sixteenth century Scotland, clans held their lands
more by power of sword than by written title, but in the latter
half of the century the pattern of ownership began to change.
The powerful and fiercely ambitious Clan Campbell embarked on
a period of acquisitive expansion.
Williams tells the story of their ruthless and systematic harrying
of the MacGregors in all its cruel and bitter detail. This was
no less than the intended extermination of an entire clan.
Williams is a gifted historian and House of Lochar is proud to
have published no less than four of his titles.
