Twelve descriptive sketches, one for each month of the year, observing the environment and describing her life at a Scottish Highlands croft through the course of a year. The author, Wendy Wood (1892-1981), was an eccentric and gifted artist and one of the founders of the political party that would later become the Scottish National Party. From the jacket flap: ''I do not want the idealised description, but the real life with its rain, its corrugated iron and its storms. That there is beauty which cancels out the drawbacks is as much truth as the mud and the barbed wire, and so I have just written as I find life from week to week, hoping that others will share my contentment and happiness.
