Written by Neil Gunn, Introduction by Kevin MacNeil
Butcher's Broom was Gunn's fith niovel, an epic recreation of a tragic period on Scottish history - the Highland Clearences of the nineteenth century. The spirit of Highland cultire and the Gaels' sense of community and tradition are captured here and the novel's charactures embody what is most vital and lasting in humanity.
The novel is among the most moving of Gunn's works and it established the trancendant spirituality that would come to dominate his later work.
