Kurzbeschreibung

From the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries, outlaws reigned supreme on the contentious frontier between England and Scotland. Feud and terror, raid and reprisal, were the ordinary stuff of lifeand a way of survival. Power was held by the notorious border reivers (the "e;steel bonnets,"e; named for their flashy helmets), who robbed and murdered in the name of family: the famous clans (or "e;grains"e;)like Elliot, Armstrong, Charlton, and Robsonromanticized by Sir Walter Scott. In The Steel Bonnets, George MacDonald Fraser, author of the bestselling Flashman novels, and himself a borderer, tells the fascinating and bloody story of the reivers, their rise to power as ferocious soldiers of horse, and their surprisingly sudden fall from grace.
