Because of his humble beginnings and his whole-hearted affection for Scotland and her common folk, Robert Burns was able to record and compose poems and songs that speak to people from every walk of life. He was, and still is, one of Scotland's best-loved sons.
Two centuries after his death and in the true spirit of auld lang syne, literally old long since, Joanne Findon and Ted Nasmith have collaborated on this beautiful and personal glimpse into the life and times of Robert Burns. From his birth to almost the close of his life, this narrative reveals the events and influences that shaped the poet's work.
Joanne Findon The author of the powerful young adult fantasy novel, When Night Eats the Moon, is Joanne Findon, Celtic scholar and university lecturer. She has had a fascination for Stonehenge since she first saw photographs of it as a child. "I have returned to Stonehenge a number of times, but my last trip was the most powerful because I walked there from the town of Amesbury. . . Even with the fence around it, this monument is still a powerful sight."
