Tapestry of the Boar Nigel Tranter read online review & book description:

During the reign of Malcolm IV, King of the Scots, Hugh de Swinton and
his fellow mosstroopers helped keep the rampaging Galloway rebels at
bay. But it was for his expertise in the killing of wild boars, as
protector of the Swintons' sheep flocks, that young Hugh was brought to
Malcolm's attention.

But Malcolm was a pious man much concerned with the well-being of his
people. And he handpicked Hugh de Swinton to mastermind a very special
project close to his heart: to establish Scotland's first real hospital
for the sick and poor, at Soutra in Lauderdale.

Action, chivalry and romance in the 12th century: the story of Hugh de
Swinton and his thrilling life that encompassed fighting, farming and
the foundation of Scotland's first hospital.
