Scotland has built great literature out of its richly textured language. Like the stones bound together in a wall, the poets linkied here by location and shared language embody the beauty of their country and the passion 'pulsin through its heirt'. These Dumfries and Galloway poets, free in their own inimitable styles and approaches, are bound together by the unique culture of Scotland. Their poems help to raise the wall of that culture in the modern world.

'The poets Rab Wilson has gathered in this anthology represent and important and often neglected strand in contemporary Scottish poetry. Native Scots-speaking poets whose chosen language is distinct from English and expressive beyond the capacities of that sister-language, they are committed to their country, their place and the people who inhabit the world beside them. However, earthed and native as they are, there is nothing narrowing or oversimplified here.'

The range and liveliness of the poems are a testament to the continuing vitality of the Scots language in Dumfries and Galloway
