"It is my desire, not so much to write a new book about Galloway, as to focus and concentrate what I have already written for the use of Galloway-lovers and Galloway travellers. I am not making a guide-book, but rather a garrulous literary companion to the guide-books which already exist, and to those which may be written in the future. I write not of All Galloway, but only of the part best known to me - that which has, in some degree, come to be called "The Raiders' Country" - about which traditions new and old have materialised themselves with something of the concreteness and exactitude of history." --- from the Foreword.
