The story of Scott's life is more astonishing than any romance. As a child he was afflicted with infantile paralysis; as a young man he experienced a tragic love-affair; in middle age he suffered a prolonged illness that would have killed any other human being; and late in life he was financially ruined. Each aspect of his protean personality is revealed in this book. Includes an Index.
