A story so incredible, it was believed to be historical fiction. Donald McBane is a figure from history much loved by those who have had the joy of studying his autobiography. Growing up in Inverness... More > and later joining the British regiments, McBane travelled across Europe pimping, duelling, blowing himself up, and performing other incredible feats of a not always admirable nature. The last we hear of him is when he comes out of his retirement in his fifties to fight one last bout in Edinburgh, where he defeated his opponent and walked off with barely a scratch. Yet for all his heroic and sometimes crazy actions, he is remembered only for a single act of cowardice on maps marked as the "Soldier's Leap". This is a highly accurate reproduction of McBane's original work from 1728. It features reproductions of all the original image plates as well as a full and accurate transcription of McBane's original text including his teaching on self-defence, an account of his life and adventures and the art of gunnerie.< Less

Some travelled from distant lands,... More > stayed in their native lands, experienced hardships, made sacrifices, lived and participated in all the events we call history, for your benefit. Using the information I have, I am going to try and tell you about all the forgotten ancestors and some present stories from family members too.  It has been a very long three years searching and discovering the Gamst Family History however now I have come to a point where I can share all my knowledge with you, I hope that this work can be of value to new generations who will have some interest in learning more of family “roots“.   I would also like to mention at this point that a lot of the information I have found or received had been in Norwegian so many hours of translating has taken place, and I trust all is correct.  < Less
