Time to get digital for books on the move. It's not just the latest fiction you can get to read on your ereader - classic books fact and fiction are also avaialable.

At 'unco' we root out newly edited copies of unco texts so that you can guarantee you won't be wasting your time downloading, or get frustrated with illegible text. So... why not have an explore.
First up is 'A Cameronian Apostle.' This is a biography of John Macmillan of Balmaghie first published in 1896 by Rev H.M.B.Reid. John MacMillan was, undoubtedly, a man of unusual force and determination. For many years he fought the battle of the Covenants alone, and he fought it on lines of policy and wisdom. He is called him ‘a Cameronian Apostle’; for, during the long period of thirty-six years, he was the sole ordained minister among the scattered congregations of the ‘Society’ people.

And if it's fiction you prefer, why not try the paperback fictional version of the story of John Macmillan by S.R.Crockett. Crockett takes Reid's biography and gives it the historical adventure romance makeover. Set in Balmaghie, it's a must for anyone living in, or a lover of The Glenkens.
