Norse-Slayer and nation-builder, Kenneth, son of Alpin mac Eochaidh, King of Galloway, was the visionary who brought together the ancient kingdoms of Alba, Dalriada, Strathclyde and Galloway to create the country of Scotland. Yet his vision was wider still. He dreamed of a great coming together of all the Celtic people, Scots, Irish, Welsh, Cornish and Manx, united against the Norse and the Anglo-Saxon invaders. Fighting not only his country's enemies but also the fractious, obstinate wilfulness of his own people, his legacy was a nation, with its own patron saint, the apostle Andrew, that would endure from the ninth century to the present day. A gripping historical novel about the origins of Scotland by Nigel Tranter, master of Scottish historical fiction.
