Delving deep into Scotland's rich history and culture, past and present, Edwin Moore has gathered together over a thousand facts about its monarchs, heroes and rogues; battles, scandals and great trials; food and (of course) drink; legends, folklore, and sports - for starters - and presents them here in easily digestible, scone-sized portions.If you ever wondered what a bawbee is, or whether both Barack Obama and John McCain can really be descended from a Scottish Lion, then you'll find the answers here. "Scotland: 1,000 Things You Need To Know" is the perfect present for all lovers of things Scottish.
