In 1906, life in Wamphray - situated between Lockerbie and Moffat in Southern Scotland - revolved round farm life, the church and the school. While Paterson attends closely to the personalities whose influence was felt, he writes too of the routines and habits of less famous folk, providing a backcloth reflecting many rural communities of the time.
