A Bit of Crack and Car Culture is a major work by one of Scotland's most talented and perceptive writers. Set in a stark shore-line community in Ross-shire, this 'village of stories' is a remarkable picture of the day-to-day struggles of ordinary people and the joys and vanities of life. A Bit of Crack and Car Culture includes the short story, 'Footprints in the Sand', with which Bess Ross won the 1988 Neil Gunn Memorial Prize and which helped confirm her as one of the most distinctive Scottish writers of her generation.
