Charles Cowan was a significant figure in 19th Century Scotland. Paper-manufacturer, financier, intellectual and philanthropist, Cowan was a man of wide interests and connections. As a member of the House of Commons he spoke for the rising Scottish middle class. He was a major lay supporter of the newly formed Free Church of Scotland and helped to fund the building of over 1,000 churches, manses, schools, and a theological college, leaving a legacy that is often felt more than known or acknowledged.
"This book, with its detailed yet highly readable story, sets the pattern for others to follow. It is high-class biography, accurate and broad in scope, yet immensely interesting and informative."
