9780099219408: Bruach Blend

Meet the inhabitants of Bruach in the Hebrides: the comical escapades of Erchy and Morag, Hamish, with his unusual talent for nursing lambs, and the philandering Hector. We also meet Bonny the cow, Crumley the bull and Harry the hedgehog, who together make up 'Miss Peckwitt's colourful and uncontrollable collection of animals and other livestock'. Based on Lillian Beckwith's twenty years living as a crofter in the Hebrides, the appeal of these charming tales lies in their humour and lively writing.

About the Author:

Lillian Beckwith (Lillian Comber) was born in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, in 1916. She went to live in the Hebrides before the Second World War and stayed there for nearly twenty years, living first on Elgol, Isle of Skye, and later on the nearby and smaller Isle of Soay. Her hilarious initiation into crofting life is captured in the heart warming book 'The Hills is Lonely'. She acquired her own cottage, and living and working on her own croft gave rise to a series of magical Hebridean books such as 'The Sea For Breakfast'. She retired to the Isle of Man, where she died in 2004.
