Scottish Travellers take their grandchildren to stop in a tent to find out what life was like when they lived in tents. Johnny, the sensitive boy, finds first through dream then reality that he is linked to people who once lived there at the time of the Highland Clearances (the 'Great Sheep'). The book is about reconciliation and forgiveness. The book illustrates one of the ways in which the people known as the Nawken - Scottish Travellers - became what they are. Ages 8-13.
