Colin MacDonald, son of generations of crofters, worked the land and then went to college. He became a Senior Land Officer but he was also a born story-teller and broadcaster. Now two of his first published stories from over fifty years ago are reprinted here, to bring back the peat-reek, the authentic tastes and smells of the past seen through the eyes of a man who knew how to single turnips by hand and drive a loved old cow to market - and how to laugh when she returned over the braes of her own accord.
