Scottish By Inclination (Paperback)Barbara Henderson (author)
'Gradually I forgot I was a foreigner.'
Barbara Henderson has been Scottish by inclination for 30 years. She fell in love with Scotland and its people when she left Germany at the age of 19. Now a children’s author, storyteller and teacher in the Highlands, she gives us a lively glimpse of Scotland through the eyes of an EU immigrant – from her first ceilidh to Brexit and the choppy seas of citizenship.
Scottish by Inclination also celebrates the varied contributions of 30 remarkable Europeans – beer brewers, entrepreneurs, academics, artists and activists – who have chosen to call Scotland home.
‘All voices matter and deserve to belong.
Belonging is more than a privilege.
Belonging, I am now convinced, can be a choice.’
