|Title:||Gilian the Dreamer|
|Publisher:||William Blackwood and Sons|
A BREATHLESSLY BEAUTIFUL NOVEL OF THE HIGHLANDS
In his day, and with his novels of romance, adventure, and Scots character, Neil Munro was considered the natural successor to his countrymen Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson.
Like Walter Scott’s “Waverly,” “Gillian the Dreamer” deals with the imaginative side of the Gaelic soul, trampled and disdained by male-dominated Scots culture.
An orphan, Gilian is a boy of nature and poetry and spirit, at one with the glens and hills of the Highlands. He is naturally drawn to the nurturing Miss Mary, and the lovely Nan . . . but his affinity with them draws the ire of jealous males.
Will Gilian’s imagination . . . and dreams . . . survive to sing, like the curlew, over the lonely lochs and sea of Scotland? [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Munro, Neil
Neil Munro (1863—1930) was a Gaelic-speaking native of Argyllshire who spent most of his working life as a journalist and writer in Glasgow. He is universally known for his humorous Para Handy Tales which first appeared as newspaper sketches and which forever associate him with the West Highlands. His more important literary work includes a series of historical novels and some outstanding short stories—indeed, it has been suggested that Munro is one of Scotland's best short story writers.
