First published in 1899 and written by William F McHardy the book celebrates the coastal town of Montrose, its people and the local countryside. More than one hundred years later some of the poems and songs still strike a chord in the 21st century with descriptions of family life, Scottish identity, and the trials and tribulations of the human spirit.
Tesco rep Bob said: “Profits from book sales will help raise money for charity. I’m delighted we have ‘resurrected’ this book so a new audience can enjoy it.
“Many thanks to everyone who have made it happen and I hope readers enjoy the journey back in time to the people and places of Montrose.”
The book Bonnie Montrose, Poems and Songs, by W F McHardy is available from internet booksellers and book shops in the area and profits will go to Cancer Research UK, British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.
