9780750531337: The Wind That Shakes the Barley

This is a classic novel of the life and times of Robert Burns. Although he died at the age of just 37, Robert Burns had an extraordinary life. Born into poverty and hardship, the family somehow managed to hire a tutor for the young Robert and his intelligence and passion were obvious from an early age.

About the Author:

The son of Galloway parents, James Barke moved to Glasgow in his teens, where he worked in the shipyards and actively participated in the local political and cultural life. He had numerous novels published between 1933 and 1939 before he took on the ambitious task of re-creating the life of Robert Burns in a series of five novels. A lifetime of arduous research, combined with a novelist's rich talent, ensured that the five volumes have deservedly been best-sellers and attained worldwide success. James Barke died in 1958.

Review:

"He tells us a story, a living story, of Burns as it has never been told before. It is not stiff with interjected dates and place-names and occasions. No, it flows easily and mightily." --Scottish Field

"a vivid, sympathetic and eminently readable account" --Oxford Mail

"a vivid, sympathetic and eminently readable account" --Oxford Mail
