Synopsis

'In this collection the heretical principle has been adopted that if a writer is Scots, something of the Scottish spirit must inevitably emerge from his work.'

In the twenty stories collected here we are given a multi-faceted view of Scotland, the Scots and the Scottish short story. With stories ranging from Roman Britain through the trials of those at home during the Second World War to a country and people determined to assert their independence.
