Storytelling is inherent to Scotland’s national identity. The stories we tell and who we share them with, are a fundamental part of our lives. From remembering the tales passed down to us in childhood, to reflecting on the defining moments that shaped our lives, or the places, people and communities that helped us find home – stories connect us to ourselves and the people around us. Whether it’s the memory of picking berries in summer time surrounded by family, the transcendent joy of attending a ceilidh, or an newly –found family finding their feet in a foreign land, these pieces highlight the rich and varied tradition of storytelling in Scotland, paying tribute to the stories already written and those still to be told. This collection has been written by people all over the country, reflecting on the theme of Scotland’s Stories as part of Scottish Book Trust’s annual project, Your Stories.

This is a free book that was produced to celebrate Book Week Scotland 2022, with stories from the Scottish public. As usual, I have picked up a few of these during Book Week Scotland to pass on. There is always a little gem in these books and this year, for me, it was the descriptions in The Seeds of Our Home.
