Foreword by Gerry Cambridge. Introduction by Iain Crichton Smith

"Though his poetry has a masculine outspokenness and force, he is very sensitive to the feminine part of his nature."
Iain Crichton Smith

"David Morrison takes a clear look at life and all who share it and writes about them (and himself) with admirable energy. His 'character poems', to take an example, are a joy to read."
Norman MacCaig

"If this is the voice of the north, it speaks from a full, warm heart for its neighbour, and that is a voice worth hearing in ony airt."
Tom Scott

"His poetry is the verbal record of his love affair with Scotland, an affair that embraces identifiable individuals and reaches out to the readers of this book."
Alan Bold
