Product description


[Moffat] is wonderfully able to communicate the epic elements of the story, which matters because that's precisely what man's survival has been'--Scotsman

A fascinating picture'--James Naughtie "Today Programme BBC Radio 4 "

The fusion of science and the physical history - like an abandoned croft - allows people to trace their Scots ancestry with precision'--Sunday Herald

About the Author

Born and raised in Kelso in the Scottish Border country, Alistair Moffat has often left the place in body, but never in spirit. He attended the universities of St Andrews, Edinburgh and London, and also received some tough education on the rugby fields of the Borders. In 1976 Alistair took over the running of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and in five years made it the largest and most dynamic arts festival in the world. A prolific and popular author, Alistair’s books Kelsae, The Borders, The Reviers, The Sea Kingdoms, The Wall and Tuscany are all published by Birlinn.
