The Clyde Valley

£3.99

Product description

“The purpose of this book is to tell the story of the land and people of Clyde. The story of the land begins many millions of years ago. We shall read first how the surface of the land, slowly changing, gradually reached the stage at which people could live on it. Then we shall read about the people themselves and where they came from. We shall see how the life of the Clyde Valley of today slowly took shape, through the effort and determination of these people as they tried to make a good living from the soils, rocks, river and sea around them. The land of Clyde is like Scotland on a small scale. It has a part of the Highlands with lochs and bens, a part of the Southern Uplands with dales and rounded hills, and a part of the Lowlands with cities and industry. And, to the west, there are islands and the sea. The Clyde is a river and land of contrasts and variety.” Includes black-and-white photographs and illustrations. Book in fair condition – it is an ex-library book with the normal stickers, stamps and wear from use.
