The story of how Scotland became independent...
Robert Castle is fighting to save the UK Union when an incident while walking in the Scottish Highlands turns his life upside down.
A search for justice leads Robert to look deep into Scotland's history and what he finds will change not just his life, but the direction of a nation.
Sensing that the theft of Scotland’s land over many centuries has robbed the people of their opportunity to be independent, Castle fights for a modern day land grab - to reverse the clearances that stole Scotland’s land from the people.
Challenging an out of touch parliament, Robert turns government on its head by introducing Cafe Politics - a way for communities to debate and agree their own policies.
But how far will Robert go in his determination to overturn the injustice of the Highland Clearances and will he lead Scotland to a better future or into civil war?

Serialized over three books during the summer of 2014, this is the complete trilogy
Born in Aberdeen, raised in the Shetland Isles and currently living in Central Scotland, Mark Anderson Smith has seen Scotland transformed since oil was discovered under the North Sea. Having lived in England for ten years and worked from 1999 till 2001 in Central Asia he has a unique perspective on what it means to be a Scot at home and abroad. His two years in Central Asia were spent in the Republic of Tajikistan, a new country that declared independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. Instead of resulting in freedom, independence led to a five year civil war - the consequences of which can still be found today. Yet despite seeing the destructive power of a country that tried to tear itself apart, he also saw people willing to forgive, willing to work together, willing to fight for the future - without resorting to violence. Mark enjoys walking Scotland's mountains and climbing. Visit his Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/my100goals
