9780099066200: The Hills is Lonely

THE 1984 ARROW EDITION (Surely it is that quiet here even the sheeps themselves on the hills is lonely.... Lillian Beckwith's account of her stay on Bruach has hardly been out of print since it first appeared in 1957. Read it and you will understand why. Re-live her experiences of the market day punch-up, the attempt to tow some cows from an even more remote island in a small rowing boat behind a rickety fishing boat and, above all, the funeral of Ian Mor. I laughed out loud)

Product Description:

Originally published: London : Hutchinson, 1959

Review:

For an unsentimental, lively, apparently photographically accurate picture of a Hebridean island, Miss Beckwith's essays or memoirs or stories would be hard to beat (The Times)
