This carefully crafted ebook: "Tales of My Landlord: The Stories from the Scottish Highlands (Illustrated Edition)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Tales of my Landlord is a series of novels by Sir Walter Scott that form a subset of the Waverley Novels. Of these novels, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor have been the most successful and Old Mortality is considered by modern critics to be among Scott's best work. They were so called, because they were supposed to be tales collected from the fictional landlord of the Wallace Inn at Gandercleugh. This is gone into in great depth in the introduction to The Black Dwarf. They were supposed to reflect aspects of Scottish regional life.
