Riassunto: This is the story of the border: a place of beginnings and endings, of differences and similarities. It is the story of England and Scotland, told not from the remoteness of London or Edinburgh or in the tired terms of national histories, but up close and personal, toe to toe and eyeball to eyeball across the tweed, the Cheviots, the Esk and the tidal races of the upper Solway. This is a tale told in blood, fun and granite-hard memory. This is the story of an ancient place; where hunter-gatherers penetrated into the virgin interior, where Celtic warlords ruled, the Romans came but could not conquer, where the glittering kingdom of Northumbria thrived, the place where David MacMalcolm raised great abbeys, where the border rivers rode into history, and where Walter Scott sat at Abbotsford and brooded on the area's rich and historic legacy.
About the Author: Alistair Moffat, born and raised in Kelso in the Scottish Border country, has often left the place in body, but never in spirit. He attended the universities of St Andrews, Edinburgh and London, and also received some tough education on the rugby fields of the Borders. In 1976 Alistair took over the running of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and in five years made it the largest and most dynamic arts festival in the world. It was during his time there that it grew tremendously and many famous names emerged as major talents. Moffat then moved to Scottish Television and rose through the ranks to become director of programmes. On the way he made several award-winning documentaries and then took over the running of the children's schedule on ITV. After a period as chairman of Scottish Television, he returned to the Borders to work and live where he founded the Borders Book Festival which takes place in Melrose each summer and threatens to grow phenomenally.
