A vivid description of Glasgow life, as seen through the untroubled eyes of a child - the street games, the town characters and the strange adult work of parents and relatives as back cloth, all set in the teeming St Rollox district, where in the time of the author's grandfather, every steam locomotive in the world was born.

Glasgow, the city that first thought of using steam, and gave the world names for two of the four units of measurement for energy "Watt and Kelvin", has a growing body of literature and this novel by an important writer in the remarkable Scottish Literary Renaissance of the 1940s has become something of a classic in the years that have followed.
