A salutary tale

Friday March 3 Talk by John Nelson, author of On the Trail of a Broken Shoe

Selkirk Arms High Street 2pm £3

The book is based on the true story of the last man hanged in Scotland for horse-stealing.  As part of John’s research, he rode a Clydesdale into the Highlands in 2011 following in the footsteps of an ancestor whose horse had been stolen in 1811. The book also includes tales of Kirkcudbrightshire. John Nelson lives in Crossmichael.
