These travel memoirs from Galloway span from between the war years until current times and cover a wide spectrum of people and places in this fascinating corner of Scotland. The subject matter spans Galloway-Irish dialect, rock fishing, potato famine, harvesting, Italian PoW's, woodcutting, poaching, the daily trains, summer fitba', the village sports, the tinkers and inshore fishermen. MacIntosh uses his great skill as a writer to bring to life aspects of rural life which have gone and some which may yet disappear. The characters are all unique and inhabit a marvellous patchwork of places and situations which Macintosh is able to convey in a humorous yet never sentimental way. A fitting sequel to his first book.
