Redgauntlet is a historical novel by Sir Walter Scott and part of his Waverley Novels series. Set in Dumfries, Scotland in 1765, it describes the genesis of a third Jacobite Rebellion. It also includes "Wandering Willie's Tale", a well-known short story frequently featured in anthologies. An entertaining and masterful-written novel, Redgauntlet is highly recommended for fans of English civil war fiction and is not to be missed by lovers of Scott's seminal work. Many vintage books such as this had been becoming increasingly rare or expensive. This volume is now republished in an available, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. First published in 1824.
An edition of this book was published by Columbia University Press.
