From the Back Cover

Sunset Song . Cloud Howe . Grey Granite Lewis Grassic Gibbon's remarkable trilogy, voted 'the best Scottish book of all time' Chris Guthrie, torn between her love of the land and her desire to escape the narrow horizons of a peasant culture, is the thread that links this trilogy. In it, Gibbon interweaves the personal joys and sorrows of Chris's life with the greater historical and political events of the time. Sunset Song, the first and most celebrated book of the trilogy, covers the early years of the twentieth century, up to and beyond the First World War. Chris survives, with her son Ewan, but tragedy has struck and her wild spirit has been subdued. In Cloud Howe, as the minister's wife, Chris learns to love again, and we witness the cruel gossip and high comedy of village life until, once again, she suffers a terrible loss. Grey Granite focuses on Ewan and his passionate involvement with justice for the common manm but for Chris, with her intuitive strength, nothing lasts - only the land endures. 'A Scots Quair is a lyrical achievement still unparalleled in British writing.' Ali Smith --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
