Golden city: Scottish children's street games & songs
James Ritchie was a young schoolteacher in Edinburgh before the Second World War when one day he found out that a science lesson was going poorly. 'What do you like doing?' he asked his class. They replied at once that they liked playing games. This book is wholly based on the author's acute observations of Edinburgh children at play. However, these games don't just belong to Edinburgh, or even Scotland. They are a universal representation of childhood, recognised by adults and children everywhere.
