|About the Book|
Additional content: Introduction, biographical detail, interactive linksAs 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.The Galloway Collection is a wholly new edited version of the works of S.R.Crockett, not a reprinted facsimile or a scanned copy. Ayton Publishing Limited is committed to achieving a high production standard at a reasonable price. The original conventions of punctuation and style have been kept where appropriate but each volume has been individually edited, typeset, proofed and produced to modern standards and includes an original introduction by series editor Cally Phillips.
