Hardback with dustwrapper, in MINT condition. Originally published in 1952 by Robert Hale. With pp263, b&w illustrations, map and index. This edition includes an introduction by John R. Allan's son, Charlie Allan, well known in the North-east and beyond as a farmer, writer and ballad singer.This is the classic introduction to the North-east, from the North Esk to John o' Groats, written with the passion and understanding of a man born and bred there. John R. Allan's informative yet intimate account of the area paints a vibrant picture of this fascinating part of Scotland. Fishing and farming feature strongly, as does the story of the principal town, Aberdeen. But what emerges most vividly of all in this beautifully written book is the indomitable spirit of the people and their rich cultural life, particularly the songs and ballads for which the North-east is renowned. S21.
