Description - Fearchair A'Ghunna by A B MacLennan
This text presents the life and sayings of a 19th century packman, nicknamed for his passion for gun-powder. Farquhar dressed in old clothes and rags ornamented with guns, pebbles, links of chain and scraps of paper, and led a vagabond life at a time when such travellers were often welcomed in the villages they visited. His witty and often pointed remarks sprang from his simple approach to life and other people, and were relished and often repeated in his native Ross-shire. This work was first published in 1881, and this is a facsimile of a later edition.
