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.
