Almost eighteen years in the making, this collection is a love poem to a rural community in Scotland. The freshness of its language brings the daily grind, its joys and harsh realities, to vivid life; its final elegies form a moving testament to a lost generation of family, friends, farmers and farms.

'It is a quiet, beautiful collection, poems punctuated by the names of fields, of grasses, and of disused dairy farms. I trust every word.' — Gillian Clarke
