I say, ‘Remember a thing… exactly, mind you… thirty or forty years and you will find a place expressly hollowed out for it, where it will grow and branch out and seed like a potted plant!
DISCOVERING CROCKETT SERIES
Discovering Crockett’s Galloway Volume 1
In Crockett Country Cally Phillips takes the reader on an armchair adventure into the Galloway hills, revealing that ‘Crockett Country’ is at least as much a place of the imagination as of strict topography or geography. From Glentrool to Back Hill o’ the Bush, taking in Loch Enoch, The Dungeon of Buchan and many other places both real and imaginary, if you have never been into the Galloway Hills this book will make you want to go and if you know them well you’ll see them in quite a new light.

Discovering Crockett’s Galloway Volume 2
The second volume of the Galloway Discovery takes in the coastline, islands and caves and then travels inland through the Heart of the Glenkens. Weaving together the stories of the Raiders Trilogy and introducing you to Crockett’s various youthful alter egos as well as fictionalised versions of his family and other Galloway ‘worthies’ if you love Galloway this is a book not to be missed.
