'Chuckies fir the Cairn' brings together Dumfries and Galloway's most eloquent poets in a collection that seeks to prove that Scots is a valid language not a dialect of English or slang. Passionate and intense; domestic and politically aware; strict attention to vocabulary and bold visual statements combine in the works of twelve highly individual poets. The unique aspects of Scots language, rich textures and sharp juxtapositions of tone, create a truly contemporary vision of Modern Scotland.

Review:

'The poets Rab Wilson has gathered in this anthology represent and important and often neglected strand in contemporary Scottish poetry. Native Scots-speaking poets whose chosen language is distinct from English and expressive beyond the capacities of that sister-language, they are committed to their country, their place and the people who inhabit the world beside them. However, earthed and native as they are, there is nothing narrowing or oversimplified here.' - ALAN RIACH The range and liveliness of the poems are a testament to the continuing vitality of the Scots language in Dumfries and Galloway - THE HERALD
