Pilgrims in the Rough: An Unreliable History of St Andrews (Paperback)Michael Tobert (author)
- We can order this
For centuries, people have been travelling to St. Andrews. Whether they were on a holy pilgrimage to see the magnificent Cathedral and the preserved bones of St. Andrew, or devout golfers putting their skills to the test on the Old Course - that holy grail of golf courses - or just students and scholars jostling for a place at one of Scotland's most esteemed centres of learning, St. Andrews has always attracted pilgrims.
Michael Tobert leads his readers through St. Andrews' historic highs and lows with a potent combination of the anecdotal and the informative. His writing is both astute and downright funny, and he proves that sometimes, truth really is stranger than fiction.
