James Dillon White’s novel, based on William Rose’s screenplay for the 1853 Ealing Studios classic film ‘The Maggie’.
In as much as it features a Puffer and her rascally skipper, there are similarities to the ‘Para Handy’ stories, but this is a much longer story, with many more strands, and it is set in the 1950s, when the puffer-era was ending, and traditional life in the West Highland’s was starting to change.
Even if you have seen the film, this is still a heart-warming, gentle read. 186 un-illustrated pages. Paperback.
