wonderful book

by jbob on Oct 15, 2009

Thoroughly enjoyed re-visiting Scotland. A mix of everything - history, culture, nature, people. You really feel you are travelling along with him. I have now received others of his books which are also wonderful.


A Trip Through Scotland in 1928

by barnutt on Mar 30, 2009

This is more than a travelogue...much more. Morton is well-versed in Scottish history, and as he motors the length and breadth of Scotland, he regales the reader with tales from its past...wars and royalty and superstions, customs. He stays with locals and describes their daily lives and listens to their tales. And what a pleasure to follow his progress by a detailed map of Scotland. This is beautiful picture of a time and place which is no more, causing the reader to feel nostalgic for what she has never known. I first read Morton's "In Search of England" which so enjoyable that I bought all his "In Search of...." books. His wit and humor and erudition make for a thoroughly delightful and informative read, and I'm looking forward to reading everything Morton wrote.
