The Murrays are back in this thrilling new tale from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell . . . Responsible for protecting her younger siblings from their abusive father, Bethoc Matheson is in no position to rescue another soul in Scotland. Yet when she sees a bleeding man on the verge of drowning, that’s exactly what she does, securing him safely in a cave where she can return day after day to tend to his wounds. Sir Callum MacMillan can scarcely believe such a slight lass as Bethoc could save him from the grasp of death. But he knows the telltale marks of an angry fist on her skin, and he knows she has the soul of a fighter within her feminine frame. Raised to be a protector of the weak by his Murray clansmen, Callum would prefer to be the one saving her—and save her, he will. If he can first survive the treacherous attack that led him into her irresistible arms . . . Praise for Hannah Howell and her Highland novels… “Few authors portray the Scottish highlands as lovingly or colorfully as Hannah Howell.” —Publishers Weekly “Expert storyteller Howell pens another Highland winner.” —RT Book Reviews

An historically and critically sound - and contemporary - evaluation of tartan and tartanry based on proper contextualisation and coherent analysis. This critical re-evaluation of one of the more controversial aspects of recent debates on Scottish culture draws together contributions from leading researchers in a wide variety of disciplines, resulting in a highly accessible yet authoritative volume. This book, like tartan, weaves together two strands. The first, like a warp, considers the significance of tartan in Scottish history and culture during the last four centuries, including tartan's role in the development of diaspora identities in North America. The second, like a weft, considers the place of tartan and rise of tartanry in the national and international representations of Scottishness, including heritage, historical myth-making, popular culture, music hall, literature, film, comedy, rock and pop music, sport and 'high' culture. From Tartan to Tartanry offers fresh insight into and new perspectives on key cultural phenomena, from the iconic role of the Scottish regiments to the role of tartan in rock music. It argues that tartan may be fun, but it also plays a wide range of fascinating, important and valuable roles in Scottish and international culture.

Les Murray is one of Australia's finest poets, and a noted critic and essayist. He is also an original and controversial political thinker. Peter F. Alexander's pioneering biography reveals how this complex man endured the harshest and most anti-intellectual of childhoods to develop into one of the most famous poets writing in English today. Peter Alexander deals in absorbing and intimate detail with Murray's poverty-stricken upbringing on a New South Wales dairy farm, the terrible death of his mother when he was twelve, his miserable schooling, and his decision to become a poet. Then follow the wild years at Sydney University, the mental breakdown that led to Murray's discovery of the interior of his country, and his salvation through marriage to the beautiful Valerie Morelli. The biography details Murray's dedication to his poetry, his slow but steady rise to fame, and his role in the invigorating poetic wars that convulsed Australian writers for three decades. The book climaxes with Murray's breakdown of the late 1980s and the near-death experience that at last brought him escape from depression. This is a riveting story, told with all the psychological subtlety and narrative thrust of a good novel. It places Les Murray where he belongs, at the centre of his country literary life through the second half of the twentieth century.

Twenty of the most crucial moments in Britain's history. BBC History Magazine asked a selection of leading historians to choose and describe the twenty most important turning points in British history from AD 1000 to 2000. Collected together, their choices present a new way of looking at our nation's story. From the Danish invasion of Britain in 1016, to the Suez crisis in 1956, the key moments include victories (or defeats) both at home and abroad, plague, reform and even revolutions that have reshaped the British way of life. Each contribution brings the past to life, offering new perspectives and food for debate: did the Battle of Agincourt change England's role in Europe? What was the impact of American independence on Britain? Was 1916 more important than 1939? Thought-provoking and inspiring accounts.
