"The history may be hidden, but it's there if you look --- and it's well worth finding."
---"Daily Mail "(Scotland) Scottish history isn't just about Robert Burns and "Braveheart." In fact, it's far more complex than some might think. In "Curious Scotland"," " journalist George Rosie digs deeper into Scotland's past, unearthing some of the lesser known but more surprising details, including:
. Who was behind the military's "Operation Vegetarian"?
. What became of the Glasgow Frankenstein?
. Why do Scots always spit on a certain Edinburgh street?
. And how did John Ross become the greatest Cherokee chieftain?
Rosie answers these and other questions, illuminating corners of Scottish lore that have never been explored before. With a dry wit and unflagging curiosity, he shows us that Scotland's history is full of far stranger stuff than your average plate of haggis."
