By S.R.Crockett (Volume 32 Galloway Collection)
Compiled in 1904 when Crockett was at the height of his fame, this ‘garralous literary companion’ is unlike most things you will read. Combining reminiscence with fiction it offers an introduction and an insight into the life and world of S.R.Crockett, revealing much in the process.
‘When the literary overlord of Galloway sets himself to write a book concerning his own dominion, the reader knows that he is in the most capable of hands’ Described by the author as ‘a garrulous literary companion for Galloway lovers and Galloway travellers,' this is a real treasure of a book.
Contemporary reviewers noted: The real Galloway lies within these pages; the Galloway of brown bent and red heather, of green knowe and grey gnarled thorn, of low-built farm town and wild gipsy raid, of revellers and lovemaking, of sea-mew and whaup.’
