This is the swashbuckling life story (so far) of one of Scotland's greatest sons. Ian Hamilton, born the son of a Paisley tailor in 1925, who made himself world-­famous on Xmas Eve, 1950, when he helped to remove the Stone of Destiny from Westminster Abbey and return it to its spiritual home of Scotland. This symbolic act was to set Hamilton along a lonely path as a solitary patriot whose actions have always stemmed from his deep love of his native land. He has never taken the easy option and his remarkable biography recounts episodes which encompass his many abilities and talents. Although renowned as a lawyer today, he has also been a publisher, printer, award-­winning playwright, museum curator and transatlantic yachtsman (failed). He was also the first man to canoe accross Scotland. This topselling biography is a cry for Scottish identity.
