Some of James Hogg's best stories appeared in The Shepherd's Calendar, a work of the 1820s in which he sets out to re-create on paper the manner and the content of the traditional oral storytelling of Ettrick Forest, the upland sheep-farming district in which he grew up. Like Hogg's masterpiece The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner, several of the stories from The Shepherd's Calendar deal disturbingly with the supernatural, and explore psychological depths with a remarkable insight and intensity.
The Shepherd's Calendar also draws on Hogg's experiences as a young shepherd in the 1790s, giving a convincing and very human picture of the dangers, pleasures, and tensions of the lives of the rural poor in Scotland in the years that followed the French Revolution.
