About the eBook

e-artnow present to you this unique collection of the greatest works by John and Anna Buchan (who wrote by pseudonym O. Douglas). John is mostly known by his spy thrillers and action novels, and Anna by her vivid portrayal of life and characters of the Scottish small towns and villages. Even though the legacy of the Buchan Family's Pen is very different in genre and theme, they both shared the common writing approach which was to write based on their life experience, to become inspired by the people they knew. Through their stories they brought to life the complex, courageous and tenacious people they got to know. Through their work they left us the testimony of the biggest shift in 20th century - the time of peace, happiness and naivety and the time of peril which destroyed forever their way of life after World War I.
