Book Description
On Sunday morning, before going to church, Mr. Micklewham called at the manse, and said that he wished particularly to speak to Mr. Snodgrass. Upon being admitted, he found the young helper engaged at breakfast, with a book lying on his table, very like a volume of a new novel called Ivanhoe, in its appearance, but of course it must have been sermons done up in that manner to attract fashionable readers. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description
The Acheron, which they crossed in this route, is now called the Kalamas, a considerable stream, as large as the Avon at Bath but towards the evening they had some cause to think the Acheron had not lost all its original horror; for a dreadful thunderstorm came on, accompanied with deluges of rain, which more than once nearly carried away their luggage and horses. Byron himself does not notice this incident in Childe Harold, nor even the adventure more terrific which he met with alone in similar circumstances on the night before their arrival at Zitza, when his guides lost their way in the defiles of the mountains--adventures sufficiently disagreeable in the advent, but full of poesy in the remembrance.

Annals of the Parish: Or the Chronicle of Dalmailing during the Ministry of the Revised. Micah Balwhidder
John Galt
1594082472
July 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Set in rural Scotland of two hundred years ago, Annals of the Parish is a quiet gem of a novel. The narrator, the Reverend Micah Balwidder, chronicles the everyday events, big and small, funny and tragic, of the parish of Dalmailing. Reverend Balwidder is a simple man of very human strengths and weaknesses. He is a schemer yet naive, love’s champion who denies his own life-long love, an opponent of war who joins the ranks when Scotland is threatened, and a prim and proper minister who cannot help but laugh over the affair of the bonnet. These qualities have made Balwidder one of the greatest characters in Scottish literature. Annals of the Parish is one of the first works of fiction to address the impact of industrialization and urbanization on society. Galt’s concerns are still with us today, as our rural...

I reflected the while of a minute before I made any reply, and then I said-- "I would hae na doubt of the matter, Mr. M'Lucre, could it be brought about to get you chosen for the delegate; but I fear, as ye are only Dean of Guild this year, that's no to be accomplished; and really, without the like of you, our borough, in the contest, may be driven to the wall."
