A Long Stride Shortens the Road by Donald Smith
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ranging from a celebration of the Holyrood parliament to a dialogue between Jamie Saxt and a skull, from a proposed national anthem to an autobiographical journey through pre-history, this book traverses a Scotland that is irrevocably independent of spirit, yet universal in outlook.
