This auction is for the famous novel Geordie by David Walker..

This is the story of a wee gamekeeper's son from Perthshire who takes a body-building course by correspondence and ends up an Olympic champion.

The glory of the book lies in its accurate depiction of the Scottish Highlands and the small community which propels Geordie on his way. The beauty of the crag where the eagle nests, and the scent of the mist in the glen, are everywhere.

A wry humour prevents this little masterpiece from ever cloying or sounding a false note.

"For anyone who grew up "little" in stature, wee Geordie is an inspiration and a joy. With the unlimited optimism known only to children, he develops his scrawny little body into a Scottish Charles Atlas. Luckily, his pluck grows along with his body and he becomes a man with great heart. As a child, I identified strongly with this brave little boy, as did my tiny daughter twenty years later! I wish this book were readily available for all late-bloomers to enjoy!
