Chuckies fir the Cairn: Poems in Scots and Gaelic by Contemporary Dumfries and Galloway Poets (Paperback)

Usually despatched in 7-10 days.


Scotland has built great literature out of its richly textured language. Like the stones bound together in a wall, the poets linkied here by location and shared language embody the beauty of their country and the passion 'pulsin through its heirt'. These Dumfries and Galloway poets, free in their own inimitable styles and approaches, are bound together by the unique culture of Scotland. Their poems help to raise the wall of that culture in the modern world.
