A detailed and valuable account, full of interest and good humour, of Moray farm life in the years after the War. It means a tough but rewarding way of life will not be forgotten. --Sue MacGregor, broadcasterSynopsis:
Elizabeth and Ian Macpherson took the tenancy of a small upland farm on the edge of the Dava moor in 1938. Ian, whose novels made a significient contribution to Scottish literature combined his writing with broadcasting and farming. On the death of her husband in 1944, Elizabeth took to writing a weekly column in "The Bulletin and Scots Pictorial" under the title of "Leaning On A Gate". When that publication ceased she then wrote a column "In The Country"' for the "Glasgow Herald". During the course of the next thirty years, Elizabeth Macpherson produced in her articles some of the most evocative and descriptive writing about the countryside, her animals, and the farming practices of the day. Always perceptive and with a gentle humour which beguiles the reader, she leaves a vivid picture of the hard physical life, which was the lot of the farmer during the forties and fifties. This selection forms a tribute to Elizabeth's skill as a writer. It is a valuable record of a way of life now gone forever.
