Blurb: 
Scotland is really half a dozen diverse and colorful countries in one; and its people are among the most ancient, proud and emphatic in the world. A land famous for its natural beauty, in the forefront of technological development, it can also boast some of the best managed farming lands on earth; whole provinces, rich in small industries, market towns, peaceful resorts, modern development and ancient churches, abbeys, castles; a coastline unrivalled in its dramatic contrast of islands, cliffs, rocks and splendid sands, dotted with innumerable fishing villages; cities of great character and pride, not so large as to have lost thier individuality; burghs that were old when the Conqueror came to England. Though one cannot separate the Scots from their history, for they are the most historically-conscious of races, Scotland is nevertheless a forward-looking country. And this book is concerned to give some glimpse of the face, the heart and the life of the land of the Scots today.
