The photographs are introduced by writer, David Craig, whose book "On the Crofter's Trail" was widely acclaimed and did so much to bring the story of the Highland Clearances back to a wider public. Despite previously producing six books on the Scottish Highlands David Paterson has never before tackled Scotland in its entirety, and this book fills that gap. Though Highlands and Islands are well represented with many new images, the book also covers areas often neglected such as the Borders, Central Scotland and the North East. An "all-Scotland" book from Paterson has been requested by readers and correspondants for some time and here it is, a great value, highly-illustrated volume.
