Summary, etc.: Walter Scott's novel Rob Roy follows a young Englishman, Frank Osbaldistone, to Scotland, where he travels to retrieve a debt. The story is set during the 1715 Jacobite Rising, and Frank becomes embroiled in Jacobite politics when he falls in love. The novel realistically portrays the living conditions of Highland and Lowland Scotland at the time, comparing the natives to "savage" native Americans. Though the title character, famous outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor, does appear in the novel, it is not actually about him.
