The Watcher by the Threshold : Shorter Scottish Fiction, Paperback / softback Book

The Watcher by the Threshold : Shorter Scottish Fiction Paperback / softback

Edited by Andrew Lownie

Part of the Canongate Classics series

Paperback / softback


This is the first ever complete collection of all Buchan's shorter Scottish fiction.

Set largely in his beloved Borders, these stories and novellas show the full range and depth of Buchan's writing.

Featuring shepherds, poachers, gamekeepers and drovers, they are worlds away from the tales of aristocratic adventure with which he is so often associated.Shot through with characters and places he returned to in his full-length fiction, the Buchan that emerges from this collection is a very different and much more complex writer than he is often held to be.
