(1922)



The first of Buchan's three Dickson McCunn books, it is set near Carrick in south west Scotland circa 1920. The hero is a 55-year old grocer Dickson McCunn, who has sold his business and taken early retirement. As soon as he ventures out to explore the world, he is swept out of his bourgeois rut into bizarre and outlandish adventures, and forced to become a reluctant hero. The other novels in the Dickson McCunn trilogy are Castle Gay (1930) and The House of the Four Winds (1935).
