A look at the turbulent history of the Borders — that area around the Anglo-Scottish border, that included the Debatable Lands, that hosted the activities of the reivers and saw many a Hot Trodd.
The narrative looks at all these things from the point of view of the Lord Wardens, Scottish and English, showing how they attempted to manage the perennial clashes between powerful and mistrustful neighbours without the two nations going to war.
