The Island of Sheep is a 1936 novel by the Scottish author John Buchan, the last of his novels to focus on his characters Richard Hannay and Sandy Arbuthnot. It was published in the United States under the title The Man from the Norlands. The action occurs twelve years later on from the last novel, when Hannay, now in his fifties, is called by an old oath to protect the son of a man he once knew, who is also heir to the secret of a great treasure. He obtains help from Sandy Arbuthnot, now Lord. The Island of the title is situated somewhere North of Scotland. Probably based on an island in the Faroes, its isolation is a relevant factor in the plot. The story starts with a Buchan coincidence: he meets a man he has not seen for 20 years, Lombard. It is his fourteen-year-old son Peter John who seems to be based very much on Buchans own son John and whose love of wild birds plays a part in the story, who is much more the hero. Although an adventure story, I think that the main point is to demonstrate how circumstances can strip a person of their civilised veneer and cause them to revert to their ancestral background.

The Island of Sheep 1936 is a novel by John Buchan. It is the last of his novels to revolve around Richard Hannay and Sandy Arbuthnot. The novel was published in the United States under the title The Man from the Norlands. The action occurs twelve years later on from the last novel, died four years after writing The Island of Sheep, and his duties as Governor-General of Canada in the interim limited his writing output. In an era of moral relativism, it is refreshing to read Buchan's stories, with their hero who doubts not the nobility of his cause. Read more. 2 people found this helpful. Kindle Customer.

A long-forgotten promise made by Richard Hannay finds him honour-bound to resolve a violent vendetta in which the lives of a young father and his daughter are in danger from unscrupulous and desperate men. Hannay sets out on a high-octane chase from the rural tranquillity of his English manor to the Scottish Borders and, ultimately, to Scandinavia. On the remote Island of Sheep, a final confrontation takes place and everything is decided - once and for all. They visited the Island of Sheep this was the name of Valdemars place and, when they found it empty, pretty well ransacked the house, just like so many pirates from the sea. But they did no mischief, for they were playing a bigger game. He doesnt appear to care for money so much as for the game. To be sure, his age had its problems but when you examine our era, it seems to me we have even more. At least Buchan tried to examine what it meant to be on the right side.
