First published in 1806, and revised and edited by her son for this 1845 sixth edition, this collection of letters by Anne Grant (1755-1838) tells her story of thirty years' residence in the Scottish Highlands. Described by the author as 'sketches of a life spent in the most remote obscurity', it was one of the first works to acquaint the public with the romantic scenery of the Highlands. Grant's lyrical descriptions of the landscape and characters of the rural parish of Laggan caught the imagination of a generation captivated by the poetry of Scott and Burns. The two volumes include frank and emotional details of Grant's life, including family tragedies, as well as engaging descriptions of her rural world. The work is an important example of a woman's contribution to the Romantic movement.
