Bonanzas and Jacobites : The Story of the Silver Glen, Paperback / softback Book

Bonanzas and Jacobites : The Story of the Silver Glen Paperback / softback


This is the remarkable story of Scotland's richest silver mine, near Alva, Clackmannanshire.

Its discovery, coinciding with the 1715 Jacobite rebellion, led to an extraordinary sequence of events told here for the first time.

It is a true story of fortunes made and lost, and the cast of characters include Jacobites and Hanoverians, lords and ladies, a disloyal servant, a loyal wife, and Sir Isaac Newton.

This book has been thoroughly researched from primary sources and is written in a straightforward narrative style.

It is a co-publication with 'Forth Naturalist' and 'Historian'.
