“There are few heroes even in Scottish history to be compared with James Graham, first Marquis of Montrose, who promised Charles I to ‘raise Scotland for the King’ and to do it rode with only two men through the armies of his enemies, and within a year made himself master of Scotland.
Here is the story of the interwoven fates of Montrose and his king; a queer tale of seduction and witchcraft; a lovely portrait of a woman in that most difficult situation, the wife of a hero.  And here is the hero himself, the poet and soldier whose life bore out the promise in his most famous lines:
He either fears his fate too much
Or his deserts are small,
Who dares not put it to the touch
To win or lose it all.”
