Ah, see, I thought it was spelled "The Reivers," but looked it up in OED, got confused because I was in a hurry, and listed it "riever"! Thanks, sionnach. And reesetee--I love that word, but would not have made that connection. Cool.
Hm. I always thought this was spelled rievers, like, cattle thieves. I see OED has reaver listed as a preferred spelling and riever (like in the McQueen movie--wait, was it McQueen?) second. Learn somethin' every day!
