The remarkable story of a First World War soldier, sailor, and South Uist crofter. His is a human story. It is told with complete unselfconsciousness and lack of pretentiousness. His memoirs reflect authentic old themes in an honest and original way. His Uist childhood is fascinating and can be looked upon as a contribution to the social history of the island. "MacDonald left behind a wonderfully observed account of the experience of war, seen through the eyes of a man who had a full measure of the human qualities found in the inhabitants of the Scottish Highlands and Islands" "The Hebridean crofter who went to war and saw hope and courage in a skylark" - Patrick Bishop, Sunday Telegraph "I found this a remarkable, inspiring, detailed and very human story of an extraordinary life - taking the modern Scottish reader from the people we used to be towards the people we have become" - Andrew Marr
