Edwin Moore - Scotland 1000 Things You Need To Know (2nd Hand Hardback)
Since before Hadrian built the wall, the Scots have been a race apart - fighters, builders, thinkers and drinkers, poets, players and pedagogues, proud of a fiercely independent creative heritage.
Scotland: 1,000 Things You Need To Know is the essential guide to the land and people, containing a wealth of information on all things Scottish.
How does the clan system work? . . . Why is Irn Bru spelled like that? . . . How many kings of Scotland died in bed? . . . When should you use the word 'Scotch'? . . . What actually is in a haggis? . . . And who on earth decided that the Declaration of Arbroath was a cornerstone of modern democracy?
Proudly celebrating Scottish achievement, fearlessly debunking sentiment and myth-making, Scotland: 1,000 Things You Need To Know is the real McCoy.
