Jim Hewitson's Scottish Miscellany
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungJim Hewitson's Scotland is a strange place. And this broth of off-cuts from the past, contemporary attitudes, outlandish lists, absurd tables, historical and hysterical trivia and off-the-wall observations is certainly one of the most curious Scottish books of the new millennium. In it, facts and figures collide with couthy anecdotes and unlikely yarns, all of which are shot through with that mystical ingredient which Jim has been trying to drag to the surface for thirty years: Scottishness.
'My father did tell me I came from Covenanter stock and that Robbie Burns once bought one of my ancestors a drink. Turns out our Covenanters were actually sheep rustlers and apparently the bold Burns left the bar without paying. But I am not downhearted.' Jim Hewitson
