Rose of the Wilderness
Beautiful rural descriptions juxtapose a story which is much harsher in nature. Rose travels far and learns much as she goes. Murder, humour, adventure and romance are all key parts of this complex story which offers much and delivers more for those interested in Scottish life a century ago.
As a description of life in a wild moorland region of Galloway this book will serve very well. The story is by way of being the autobiography of a farmer’s daughter on a little sheep farm away from everywhere in the wilds of Scotland.
Rural and small town domestic life is put to scrutiny in this story which is not all pastoral but includes murder and madness in abundance. The picture Crockett paints and the detail in his descriptions of natural and social worlds make it a story well worth the attention of the modern reader interested in times past.
