From the author's preface: "My endeavor has been to picture life in the north of Scotland as I knew it, with kindliness and sympathy....An attempt has, indeed, been made to give to 'Carglen' a local habitation and a name other than those I have given to it....My narrative is plain, faithful, and unadorned; but I decline to admit the accuracy of any particular identification. 'Carglen' is a purely imaginary world, though, let us hope, wonderfully like the real." Includes 5 previously unpublished Carglen stories. Good. Item #1801
