The title of this book is misleading --it should probably be "rebels" or "pretenders" instead of "outlaws" as it is not about criminals. Instead it is about rivals contending for power against the Scottish kings, chiefly in northwestern Scotland. Some of these rebels had serious claims to dynastic rights, such as Lulach (Macbeth's stepson) and the MacHeth and MacWilliam families. Others such as Fergus of Galloway,
Somerled of the Isles and Harald Maddadarson of Orkney were powerful
regional leaders seeking autonomy or independence. ( )
