A sharp copy of this Scots poetry book with a foreword by John Buchan, who writes 'Mr Hope Tait writes good classic Lowland Scots, and belongs to the small class of "makkers" who use the vernacular not as a literary exercise but because it is the speech which most naturally fits the fancies and emotions which they seek to express'.
