For nearly forty years John Wilson travelled the length and breadth of Scotland as a school inspector. From orkney to campbeltown and Jura to Dundee, he visited hundreds of schools and met thousands of teachers and pupils.

In these memoirs, first published in 1928, he paints an insightful yet humorous picture of life in the country's schools after the 1872 education Act, which brought free schooling for all Scottish children between the ages of five and ten.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'a gripping read from start to finish . . . Wilson had spent too many hours of his life jawing with anglers and commercial travellers in country hotels not to know how to tell a good story'

-- Ronald Black
