More Information
John Buchan was born in Perth England in 1875 and unlike many novelists was no armchair theorist with much of the background to his novels coming form personal experience, his best known character Richard Hannay remains one of the greatest adventure characters ever created. He spent his formative years in Scotland before winning a scholarship to Brasenose College Oxford where he met with great academic success. He left Oxford to work as a journalist before accepting a post as an administrator to the Boer Republics of Transvaal. Whilst living a very active life he did suffer with his health throughout his life, indeed he was considered unfit to serve in the Great War though he did go to the front as a reporter. After the war he settled in Oxford with some twenty books under his belt. His best known work, is of course, The Thirty Nine Steps which was a huge commercial success as well as being the basis of 3 feature films. Buchan passed away in Canada in 1940 and his ashes were returned to England.
