Killochries, Paperback / softback Book

Description

A verse novella by Glasgow Laureate Jim Carruth, Killochries tracks the relationship of two very different men working a remote farm over the course of twelve months.

A young man is sent to work at Killochries, a farm belonging to a relative, after burning out in the city.

He is appalled by the absence of his previous life's essentials, by the remote strangeness of this new world. The old shepherd has never left the hills; has farmed them all his life.

He doesn't care for the troubles of the modern world, trusting only in God, and greets the incomer with taciturn indifference.

Through weeks shaped by conflict, hardship and loss a new understanding grows.
