Murdoch Campbell’s books in English – including Gleanings of Highland Harvest, The Loveliest Story Ever Told, and Memories of a Wayfaring Man – are cherished by many. He reserved his native Gaelic for poetry and song, as well as for pulpit and parish.

Any publication of Gaelic religious poetry is now a rare event, and this small collection is welcome not only for its content but also for its craftsmanship and passion. It exhibits a fluent command of the traditional Gaelic bardic style while disclosing, behind this, a perceptive mind, a warm heart and an ardent evangelicalism. These poems point both those who knew him, and new readers, to ‘wells of joy’ which he found incomparable and tirelessly commended.
