Caledonication

John Kv Eunson

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Scotland, Prose: non-fiction, British & Irish history, Humour

This is not just a history of Scotland, it's a history of Scotland you actually want to read.

So, you thought you knew everything you needed to about Scotland and its chequered history? Well, think again.

Did you know that tobacco made up half of Scotland's exports in the eighteenth century? Did you know that JM Barrie created the name 'Wendy' for his play Peter Pan in 1904, meaning that there are no Wendys over the age of 104...? Did you know that The Beatles played at Dingwall Town Hall in 1963? See?

John KV Eunson leads us through the history of the Scots in this accurate but none-too-heavy look at the great country. On a journey of almost breakneck speed full of chuckles, we still have enough time to stop and smell the heather, taste the fudge and feel the ghosties.
