Scotland: The Autobiography

May 3, 2017

Scotland: The Autobiography is the book I have just finished reading prior to going to work in the Highlands this summer.

I chose it as I wanted to brush up on my Scottish history before visiting the country and selected this particular version of Scotland’s history as it is compiled of a selection of first hand accounts of key events from A.D.80 to 2013.

These eye witness reports refreshed my memory of the history I thought I remembered from school and gave me an insight into the trials, tribulations and achievements of Scottish people from a variety of walks of life.

This anthology of what may be called ‘life writing’ was edited by Rosemary Goring and published as part of  Penguin Books’, Read More series in 2014.

Not only has it inspired me to read more, it has also given me the idea for the thread of a story which I will be researching en route North.
