This essential collection from Lewis Grassic Gibbon comprises short stories, essays and a novel, "The Speak of the Mearns", which was unfinished at the time of the author's death in 1935. Grassic Gibbon's fame rests mainly on the trilogy, "A Scots Quair", and the short stories, some well known, exhibit the same elements - powerful, dramatic writing and a distinctive local flavour - found in the novels. "The Speak of the Mearns" is a sharply observed unsentimental portrait of a rural coastal community seen through the eyes of a young boy growing up there. The essays put on record the author's views on politics and religion.
