Lewis Grassic Gibbon is widely regarded as the greatest Scottish novelist of this century. His evocation of the people and the landscape of the North-East is unforgettable, and Gibbon's Mearns is now almost as famous as Hardy's Essex. Yet much of his life remains obscure. This book is the first new biography of Gibbon for almost thirty years, and is illustrated with superb photographs of the landscape that inspired his work. His harsh farming background, his rebellion against it and his search for personal love and intellectual fulfilment are sensitively described.
