Nowadays, it can be hard to imagine what life was like with no mobile phones. Looking back, we can only wonder how much easier life might have been if people could just send each other a quick text! But what would history's most famous Scots have been texting about?

Would Rabbie Burns have been sending love poems to his lady friends? Would David Livingstone have been lost in the jungle for so long if he had Google maps? Perhaps David Hume could have spread his serious words of wisdom alongside some emojis. And William Wallace may well have rallied the troops over instant messaging!

This witty little book sets out to discover exactly what these Scots, and many more, might have been saying on their adventures. Scottish history has never been so entertaining, or so modern!
