About the Book

Hunted and Harried is a novel written by R.M. Ballantyne. It covers a story of a small troop of dragoons crossing the ford of the river Cairn, in Dumfriesshire. They ended their way towards the moors and uplands of Skeoch Hill. Their somewhat worn aspect and mud told of a long ride over rugged ground. Slipping his arm around the waist of the terrified blonde, the trooper rudely attempted to terminate his sentence in a practical manner. But before he could put his lips on her face, one of his teammates struck him, knocking him to the ground. He describes how the people took up arms against a licentious soldiery, who ravaged the land and desecrated helpless women and children. On a brilliant summer morning in the last quarter of the seventeenth century, a small troop of horsemen crossed the ford of the river Cairn, in Dumfriesshire. Not far from the spot where the little church of Irongray was, they went towards the moors and uplands of Skeoch Hill. Dragoons trotting along the road that led into the solitudes of the hills, with all the careless dash of men whose interests are centered chiefly on the excitements of the passing hour.

About Author

R. M. Ballantyne

R. M. Ballantyne was a Scottish writer of young adult literature who produced more than a hundred books between 24 April 1825 and 8 February 1894. He was also a skilled artist; some of his watercolors were on display at the Royal Scottish Academy. The ninth of ten children and youngest son of Alexander Thomson Ballantyne (1776-1847) and his wife Anne, Ballantyne was born in Edinburgh on April 24, 1825. (1786-1855). Robert's uncle James Ballantyne (1772-1833) was Sir Walter Scott's printer, and Alexander worked as a newspaper editor and printer in the family business "Ballantyne & Co" based at Paul's Works on the Canongate. The family is documented to have resided at 20 Fettes Row in Edinburgh's northern New Town in 1832-1833. The Ballantyne printing company collapsed the next year with debts of £130,000 as a result of a UK-wide banking crisis, which caused a decrease in the family's finances. Ballantyne moved to Canada at the age of 16 and worked for the Hudson's Bay Company for five years. He traveled by canoe and sleigh to the regions that are now the provinces of Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec to trade with the local First Nations and Native Americans for furs; these experiences served as the inspiration for his book The Young Fur Traders.
