Synopsis

Neil Munro's John Splendid and the New Road by Ronald W. Renton

Neil Munro, although best known today for his humourous Para Handy stories, wrote several very fine historical novels exploring, and critiquing, Highland life and culture. Ronald Renton's SCOTNOTE study guide examines two major works by Munro: John Splendid, set during the civil wars of the 17th century; and The New Road, set during the opening-up of the Highlands by General Wade's road-building programme, shortly before the Jacobite uprising of 1745. The historical, cultural and political backgrounds of each novel are discussed and contrasted. This guide is suitable for senior school pupils and students at all levels.
