               These books are about the country folk of the North-east Lowlands of Scotland whose heart is known as “Buchan”. They tell of a way of life which is not so much Scottish as unique, and which is often known as “Doric”.

                All but one, (Farmer’s Boy which is only available in paperback) are produced in hardback. With dust covers off, they make a handsome library of the North-east, an area which has been described as “the western borders of Europe more than the eastern seaboard of Scotland”.
