# "This book is an autobiography of the happiest days of my life. It contains the most vivid recollections I have of all the things that impressed me most and all the people I loved and worshipped, like my burly great-uncles, Charlie and Peter, my grandfather and great-grandfather, dearold Miss Dunbar and Great-Aunt Maggie ...and Stewart, the man who knew horses. It is also an account of the warm summer day when my whooping-cough was cured, the day the vet operated on my poisoned foot and the days the milking-cow won a silver tea-service and the trotting-horse his last race. ...It is impossible to travel in that world of Galloway as it once was and I set it down [now] to preserve its beauty as far as I am able and while I can." This edition includes photographs of the author's family not in the first edition. The new dust-wrapper has been adapted from that of "Wigtown Ploughman". A nice new edition of one of Ian Niall's scarcest titles.
