The lives of Scottish farmers Jim and Joey Rutherford spanned most of the twentieth century and encompassed great social and economic change. In this memoir, their daughter and author Anne Ewing provides a testament to her parents steadfastness to each other and to their family and friends. With humorous anecdotes, rich details, and images, Leaving the Land shares the heritage of the Rutherfords, who were born during the First World War and married during the Second. From a very modest start, they built up their farming business over thirty-five years, always with an adventurous and enterprising approach. Their personalities combined the thrift and work ethic typical of their generation, with an openness of mind, generosity of spirit, and sense of humour not always associated with the Scottish character. Not only does Leaving the Land communicate one familys legacy, but also provides insight into Scottish history and gives commentary on signs of the times such as the socioeconomic trends, the shift from rural to urban living, and the effects of two world wars and the Great Depression. It also serves as a remembrance of lives well lived in a time and place that will soon exist in memory only.

A crime masterpiece brought back into print - and transformed into the major film, Killing Them Softly, starring Brad Pitt. Jackie Cogan doesn't advertise what he does. But when the New England mob have a mess they need cleared up, they know who to call. Markie Trattman runs a high-stakes card-game under their protection. When the game gets raided by a couple of no-name hoodlums, Jackie's out of pocket. Unless of course he set up the heist himself. Either way the mob's got a problem. To restore credibility and keep things running smooth, they need to find out who's behind the heist - and then justice must be seen to be done. Which is where Jackie comes in. The trouble is, this is one game with a lot of players, including an out-of-town hitman, a sleazy attorney, a professional dog-stealer, and enough hoods, hangers-on and high-rollers to really make Jackie earn his dough. Filmed as Killing Them Softly.

Have you ever sat down with your coffee to enjoy a new book to discover it was too flowery or too hard a read for you? Well this is definitely not that book; this book is full of wee poems written in Scottish slang as the Scots tongue and poetry is close to my heart and would like everyone to enjoy some writings of my home land. I am sure you will easily understand without a translator, and very easy to read. The childrens poems mostly have little moral endings to teach simple lessons like being careful crossing the road, keeping your teeth clean and doing as you are asked. You will enjoy the exploits of many mischievous woodland beasts along with stories of gnomes and elves. Your children will slip off peacefully to sleep and dream their own magical fantasies. This book will make you laugh and cry but hopefully most of you will enjoy these easy to read poems. Robyns Gran
