Reviews

' ... a historical and geographical context for Burns'

-designed and illustrated short information book, with maps, family trees, timelines, photographs and pictures ... this is a high-quality publication which would be valuable for any project work connected with Scotland's national poet and the festivities still connected with his name.

' ... it is engaging and full of appropriate supporting illustrations, timelines, prints and a wealth of museum material to help support the text. ... these all serve to provide the reader with a clearer appreciation of Scotland's national poet whose life and works are celebrated around the world today.'

' ... firmly aimed at children but is a book we can all read and learn something new about Burns, or have our conceptions of his time challenged. ... well-presented, with crisp, well-chosen illustrations, and places Burns both in his own time, and our own, with useful hints on holding a Burns Supper, as well as sections on farming in Burns'

-bathing in the Solway, and much more - there is even a Burns wordsearch!
