The Bloom o' the Heather
This short story collection provides a range of stories from his magazine days. Ranging from Galloway to Europe this miscellany travels in time and from rural ‘idyll’ to ‘realism’ with his characteristic humour and descriptive powers to the fore at all times.
The stories themselves are mainly Scotch. and done in Mr Crockett’s best style. Reminiscent of his earlier novels but none the less readable on that account. It is on the heather or near the heather that Mr Crockett usually contrives to make his characters appeal most to the reader.
This final collection of Crockett’s short and serialised fiction is a cornucopia of delights for the committed Crockett fan and an eye opener for those new to his work. Stories of Galloway and stories from Europe sit side by side to delight and entertain the reader.
