Alistair brings the history of the border area to life for the last 300 plus years of an active political and military frontier between England and Scotland. The book not only explains how the Revier way of life came about but has lovely, fascinating asides all the way through the text that keep one reverted to the story. The level of detail and research that must have gone into this is very evident, and brings to life the - deceit, ingenuity, treachery, stealth and survival that the Reviers carried out as they lived out their often long lives. All the more so as I live in the area that he describes, so can relate to the areas mentioned.
This is the first time I have read one of Alistair's books and I will now be searching out other ones in the hope that they are just as interesting
A book that can be thoroughly recommended – book 31, week 26 – written book 23, audio book 8
