Robert Burns: Poet and Revolutionist
Harry Holland (Dougal McNeill ed)
Steele Roberts, $30.00,
Writing during the 1920s, Harry Holland describes the celebration of Burns Night as an event which unites Scots around the world:
be the Scot where he may, in the wilds of Africa, by New Zealand’s shores, in the Australian bush, on the cattle-ranch of America, if he can find a few Brither Scots he must arrange to meet with them on the 25th of January and throw himself heart and soul into the commemoration of Rabbie Burns.
