Spade Among the Rushes Book Cover

Thanks to James Hutcheson from Birlinn for choosing my photo for the cover of this book. The book is an account of the hardships of crofting in the the small village of Smirisary during the second world war.

 

I've had a few images used for book covers now, this one's special because it was written about half a mile from where I used to live on the West coast of Scotland.
