Young Art and Old Hector

Neil Gunn


When the sheer intensity of life in his family East Highland crofter-fishermen threatens to overwhelm him, eight-year-old Art turns to Old Hector. When Art's brother, Donal, contrives to escape looking after him or when his mother and sisters become determined to curb his passions, Art seeks out the companionship of the old man. Hector's salmon-poaching days man be done, but he is still able to 'steal down the glen' and outwit the 'gaugers' to provide whisky for a friend's wedding.
