The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

This is a story of how music-loving Ian, the young son of a Scotch shepherd, earned his longed-for bagpipes and his musical education by dint of a faithful performance of duty.

Children, whatever their surroundings, will love this charming tale of Ian's struggle to rear the mother- less lamb entrusted to his care in order to win the coveted pipes. Entertaining from start to finish, it has all the elements that endear a story to the child heart, namely; a lovable boy hero, achieving his supreme ambition under great difficulties, a wealth of stirring action and excitement, and a very natural and satisfying climax. The glimpse of Scottish geography and folk history which the story offers is one of its greatest charms. And young readers will delight in the acquaintance of Sandy, the kindly old piper.
