Rope - In Case

'When I had first come to the Hebrides Morag, my landlady, had advised me always to ",take a rope - in case,", . . . Over and over I had proved its usefulness. I might need it to catch a calf or a sheep, to carry a bundle of hay to the cow or a can of paraffin from the grocer, to tie a bundle of driftwood I had collected, or a sack of peat, to secure a boat, make a temporary repair to a sagging fence or a halter for a horse . . . Excepting when they were going on holiday or to church, the Bruach crofters were rarely without a length of rope, either coiled around an arm or protruding from a pocket.' The fourth of Lillian Beckwith's books on her life on Bruach, A Rope - In Case is packed with hilarious stories and delightful characters. Yet it is never sentimental - always observant. 'Hugely enjoyable fourth book of Hebridean humour and characters' Manchester Evening News
