    Robert Burns was born into a farming family in Alloway in Ayrshire in 1759. He died in Dumfries at the early age of 37. Yet in that short time he had taken the Scottish literary world by storm, and had secured for himself a place in history and legend. Illustrations by Bob Dewar, introduction by John Cairney and afterword by Clark McGinn.
