The life and sayings of a nineteenth century packman, nicknamed for his passion for guns and gunpowder. Farquhar, dressed in a fantastic garb of old clothes and rags ornamented with guns, pebbles, links of chain and scraps of paper, led a vagabond life when such travellers were often welcomed in the villages they visited. His witty and often pointed remarks sprang from a native wit which survived a mental trauma; his sayings were relished and oft-repeated throughout his native Ross-shire and it was as a memorial to him that this anecdotal biography first appeared in 1881. A good book for a guest-room or as an informal gift.
