Book Week Scotland: Scotland - Her Story with Rosemary Goring


  • -


Scotland’s history is well told but rarely from the exclusive viewpoint of its women. In her new book ‘Scotland: Her Story’, Rosemary Goring sets out to change that.
Taking a unique perspective on national events over the past 1500 years, Rosemary uses first-hand accounts, records, newspapers and statements to bring to life the ‘other half’ of our nation’s history. With a range of sometimes rebellious, sometimes influential but always interesting characters as diverse as Princess Matilda, Lady Grizel Baille, Mary Slessor and Aberdeen’s own Nan Shepherd, join Aberdeen City Libraries for a unique take on Scotland’s history.
