|The Moss of Cree
A Scottish Childhood
by Mary Cecil Gladstone
The Highland Sea-tm - #2 in the series
An Adventure in Growing Up
The charming story of Mary's journey from wee'un to sophisticate, told in her own evolving voice. Raised on a dairy farm, Mary picks the natural path when possible, through spiky settings and happier dangers. The narrative takes us with her, into finding and freeing herself for a new and open future. As a descendant of an accomplished historic family, she learns quickly the intrigue of wider opportunity.
