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. Anne 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. Volume 2 includes engaging descriptions of the pleasures of rural life alongside frank and emotional accounts of personal tragedies. The work is an important example of a woman's literary contribution to the Romantic movement.
