A biography by Freeland Barbour of Caroline Oliphant, Lady Nairne, writer of some of Scotland's best-loved songs.

Caroline Oliphant, Lady Nairne, a contemporary of Robert Burns, wrote over ninety songs, some of which enjoyed great popularity during her lifetime and still do up to the present day.

Despite their popularity, she shunned publicity and never acknowledged her authorship, even concealing it from her husband.

They are some of Scotland's most famous traditional songs, including, The Land O The Leal, Will Ye No Come Back Again, The Auld Hoose, The Rowan Tree, The Laird O Cockpen, Wi' A Hundred Pipers and Caller Herrin.

Freeland Barbour, a descendant of Lady Nairne's eldest sister, has written a long-overdue biography and reassessment of her life and work, much of it based on research into family papers to which he has access.
