The last man to die for the Jacobite cause

Had Doctor Archibald Cameron had his way, there would probably have been no last Jacobite Rising in 1745.

His life is one of nobility and high adventure featuring buried treasure, treachery and clan feuds. It is thrilling and tragic.

This is wonderfully detailed social history of Dr Cameron, the last man to die for the Jacobite cause.

Lady McGrigor has produced yet another fantastic biographical account of a figure far too interesting to be lost in the past.

From the tiny gory details to the retelling of clan uprisings, Doctor Archie combines the story of a man brought to light in vivid descriptions with a compelling account of the Jacobite uprising.

Doctor Archie, by Mary McGrigor, £9.50.
