Ursula Buchan’s long-awaited biography is due to be released for publication on 18 April. As part of her extensive research Ursula has been able to draw upon recently discovered family documents as well as a number of major archival collections. In addition to producing a comprehensive record of JB’s life her aim has been to reveal more of ‘the man’, something which has been lacking to some extent in earlier biographies.

The RRP of the book is £25 but you will be able to obtain a copy through Crask Books for £24 inclusive of UK postage. Orders from overseas will attract additional shipping costs which will depend on the destination; those costs will be advised at the time of ordering.

All copies ordered through Crask Books will be signed by Ursula and, in accordance with my usual practice, 5% of my gross profit will be donated to the John Buchan Story.

In order to reserve a copy please email, write to me or telephone me using the attached form below. Orders should reach me no later than Thursday 28 February.

Payment will not be required until the book is available. I am hoping to have copies available for the John Buchan Society weekend in late March and if you are going to be there you will be able to obtain a copy for £20 if pre-ordered or £22 if not.

‘John Buchan was a writer of considerable significance but he was also a man who led a remarkable public life. This magnificent biography leads us through that life with great style and understanding’ Alexander McCall Smith
