The fifth, last and most unusual of the Hannay books, The Island of Sheep is part thriller and part meditation on nature. Having returned once again to a quiet life at Fosse Manor, Hannay's life is shaken a final time when the son of an old acquaintance from Africa asks for his help in finishing a feud that goes back thirty years to a hilltop in Rhodesia. Accompanied by Lombard and Sandy Arbuthnot, Hannay sets out to protect the family - a trip that takes him from the England he knows to the Norlands, the Island of Sheep.

John Buchan was a Scottish diplomat, barrister, journalist, historian, poet and novelist. He published nearly 30 novels and seven collections of short stories. After spells as a war correspondent, Lloyd George's Director of Information and Conservative MP, Buchan moved to Canada in 1935. He served as Governor General there until his death in 1940.
