Books Info:

The Song in the Green Thorn Tree free pdf Although he died at the age of just 37, Robert Burns had an extraordinary life. Born into deprivation and hardship, young Robert's intelligence and passion were obvious from an early age. This is the second book in James Barke's quintet of novels about Robert Burns, following "The Wind that Shakes the Barley". "The Song in the Green Thorn Tree" tells of Burns as a young poet, struggling with poverty in rural Ayrshire, and finally being parted from his lover and children as he leaves the village on his way to meet men of letters in fashionable Edinburgh. James Barke's novels sympathetically and vividly portray the life of Scotland's National Bard.

About James Barke

The son of Galloway parents, James Barke moved to Glasgow in his teens, where he worked in the shipyards and actively participated in the local political and cultural life. He had numerous novels published between 1933 and 1939 before he took on the ambitious task of recreating the life of Robert Burns in a series of five novels. A lifetime of arduous research, combined with a novelist's rich talent, ensured that the five volumes have deservedly been best-sellers and attained worldwide success. James Barke died in 1958.
