"Young Chris Guthrie comes of age in the harsh landscape of northern Scotland, torn between her passion for the land, her duty to her family and her love of books, until the First World War begins and the landscape around her changes dramatically. The first novel in Gibbon's classic trilogy A Scots Quair, Sunset Song marks the emotional and political changes that history and the coming of industrialization brings to Chris and the small farming community to which she belongs. Gibbon's book blends Scots and English into an intense evocation of Scottish life in the early twentieth century." "In her introduction, Ali Smith discusses the language and tone of Sunset Song and the impact the book has had on modern literature. This edition also includes a chronology, maps, glossary, further reading and notes."--BOOK JACKET.
