Guy Mannering

by Sir Walter Scott

The story of Henry Bertram, son of the Laird of Ellangowan, is kidnapped at the age of five by smugglers, soon after witnessing the murder of a customs officer. It follows the fortunes and adventures of Henry and his family in the subsequent years, and the struggle over the inheritance of Ellangowan. The novel vividly depicts the lawlessness which existed at the time, when smugglers operated along the coast and thieves frequented the country roads. With Introductory Essay and Notes by Andrew Lang.
