Book - 1996
Rate this:

In the summer of 1994, guided by the image of his childhood, award-winning Canadian poet Stephen Scobie returned to his native Scotland and set out on a journey that took him through the country's most beautiful and historic regions. The lyrical meditations of Taking the Gate are part poetry, part prose; part travel writting, part autobiography and create an evocative account of the rediscovery of landscape and memory. Photographs extend the author's portrayal and chronicle his experiences as past and present converge.

"The thrill of the legendary past is present throughout."
