"seeks to tap into the creative inner life of the country, weaving a rich pattern of stories and poems through the chapters"

This anthology – vibrant, poignant, full of unexpected angles, acquainted with despair, yet often charged with hope – offers a living example of how little those visions of a future Scotland now have to do with separation; and how much, at least in the language, concerns, fears and insights captured here, with the task of finding that deeper sense of connection with humanity and nature, across all boundaries, that is fast becoming an essential tool of survival in our time.
