And the Land Lay Still is the sweeping Scottish epic by James Robertson. And the Land Lay Still is nothing less than the story of a nation. James Robertson's breathtaking novel is a portrait of modern Scotland as seen through the eyes of natives and immigrants, journalists and politicians, drop-outs and spooks, all trying to make their way through a country in the throes of great and rapid change. It is a moving, sweeping story of family, friendship, struggle and hope - epic in every sense. The winner of the Saltire Society Scottish Book of the Year Award 2010, And the Land Lay Still is a masterful insight into Scotland's history in the 20th century and a moving, beautifully written novel of intertwined stories.

"superbly crafted, wonderful characters; brilliant"
The breadth of this book is awesome. The very credible lives of the beautifully observed characters, interweave throughout the book, to remind us how Scotland got from WW2 to a Scottish Parliament, through the lens of history and Angus' camera. utterly brilliant
