Out of stock
First published in 1932, Iain C. Leess book On Foot through Clydesdale is a fascinating and delightful introduction to the history, folklore, traditions and landscape of Lanarkshire a county often assumed to have been blighted by collieries, steelworks, factories and other industrial enterprises.
