Grassic Gibbons 'Sunset Song' is increasingly recognised as a great novel, and is now used as a 'set book' for Scottish school exams.
But there is very little published material to aid pupils, parents, and even teachers, in discussing this important novel.
It was a joy to find this slim pamphlet, which has been around, inconspicuously, for a while, to assist our son. Douglas Young, the author was able to pitch his reasonable-length analysis at mature schoolchildren, using plain language, rather than indulge in a prolonged, sophisticated literary critique. He not only lays the book open, but generates enthusiasm in his target readership, clearly fifth year pupils/students, for its many qualities.

This book was bought for a friend who had read it many years ago and lost it. She was thrilled to receive it.

I really enjoyed this novel. The way Gibbon thought about the modern life in the early 1900's was just amazing. Through the structure of the novel the main themes are clealy shown to me, the end of a way of life, Nothing Endures and the love of the land. A really good read.
