Clap Hands for the Singing Molecatcher : Scenes from a Scottish Childhood Paperback
Laughter, tragedy and dramatic incident thread their way through the life of a growing boy and the lives of the people he observes.
Roderick Grant's book is not merely one of nostalgic recall.
It is a richly evocative memoir of a time and place when horses still drew ploughs and children walked seven miles or more each day to reach their school; and where shepherd and gamekeeper, farmer and labourer, forester, railway worker, teacher, laird and minister, and their families, were all part of a community, close-knit in its isolation from the changing post-war world.
