Scotland in the Time of Burns, for example, deals in part with the life of the poet, but provides a context for his writing as a man of the 18th century - ranging from literature to farming. The interspersing of the pages with quotes and snippets of Burns's work, with accompanying glossary, is particularly appealing. It also has a glossary as an appendix when dealing with concepts which may be new or difficult to understand. Merlin Books is to be commended for producing volumes of such quality for a small market. Jim McGonigle is principal teacher of history at Hermitage Academy, Helensburgh.

Heard ye e'er o' Donald Gunn, ⁠Ance sae duddy, dowf, and needy, ⁠Now a laird in yonder toun, ⁠Callous-hearted, proud, and greedy. Up the glen aboon the linn, ⁠Donald met wi' Maggie Millar, Wooed the lass amang the whins, ⁠Because she had the word o' siller; Meg was neither trig nor braw, ⁠Had mae fauts than ane laid till her; Donald looket ower them a', ⁠A' his thought was on the siller.

George Rose (17 June 1744 – 13 January 1818) was a British politician. Born at Woodside near Brechin, Scotland, Rose was the second son of the Reverend David Rose of Lethnot, of an ancient family of Kilravoe, in the County of Nairn, by his second wife, Margaret, daughter of Donald Rose of Wester Clune (and a descendant of James Sharp, Archbishop of St Andrews from 1661 to 1679, through his daughter, Isabella).

Donald Trump's mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, was born and brought up on the Hebridean island of Lewis but emigrated to New York to live a very different life. Mary Anne was one of tens of thousands of Scots who travelled to the US and Canada in the early years of the last century looking to escape economic hardship at home. She first left Lewis for New York in 1930, at the age of 18, to seek work as a domestic servant. All three cousins have consistently refused to speak to the media.

Linking in with a BBC Schools Documentary, Iain Rose and Donald gunn present a rounded picture of Burns and his poetry for the younger reader. The extensive use of illustration and quotation places Burns very much in his time and illustrates the range of historical and literary references in his work. Burns lived at a time of dramatic change - political, industrial and social - in Scotland, and this book illuminates both the life and times of the nation's greatest poet.
