    An under-rated classic of Scottish literature, this novel follows the life of Andy Walker, a farm labourer whose quick temper and callous attitude to women land him in constant trouble. The book's realistic depiction of life for the rural poor in south-west Scotland caused a furore when it first appeared in 1939. Edited, with an introduction and notes by the author's son, Andrew McNeillie.
