Details

John Buchan (1st Baron Tweedsmuir; 1875–1940) was a Scottish novelist and public servant who combined a successful career as an author of thrillers, historical novels, histories and biographies with a parallel career in public life. At the time of his death he was Governor-General of Canada. At the Rising of the Waters is one of his many atmospheric short stories, recounting the tale of Scots farmer Robert Linklater and his efforts to save his cattle (and himself) from drowning during a catastrophic fall deluge. Much of the story is written colorful Scottish rural vernacular, and requires some effort to comprehend. (Goodreads; story)
