About this title

Synopsis:

'The Lord puts the salmon in the river like he puts the berries on the trees. They're there for all of us, not just for the laird.' The Bruach islanders don't consider poaching a crime, more like a natural right. Fishermen Erchy and Hector are experts, but they are not the only ones tempted. Even a visiting vicar succumbs. In this collection of tales about her eccentric island friends, Lillian Beckwith sees the funny side of many a strange situation.

About the Author:

Lillian Beckwith (Lillian Comber) was born in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, in 1916. She went to live in the Hebrides before the Second World War and stayed there for nearly twenty years, living first on Elgol, Isle of Skye, and later on the nearby and smaller Isle of Soay. Her hilarious initiation into crofting life is captured in the heart warming book 'The Hills is Lonely'. She acquired her own cottage, and living and working on her own croft gave rise to a series of magical Hebridean books such as 'The Sea For Breakfast'. She retired to the Isle of Man, where she died in 2004.
