MacDonald, George: Alec Forbes of Howglen. 17 July 2007
"A Victorian-Era Scottish Novel, largely autobiographical, relating to Huntly, Aberdeenshire, where MacDonald was born: he spent his boyhood at Upper Pirriesmill, the 'Howglen' of the novel. A dramatic story of adventure and endearing romance.
"Lewis Carroll recorded in his diary, Jan. 16, 1866, that he found the story very enjoyable, and the character of Annie Anderson one of the most delightful in fiction. 'The Scotch dialect, too, is pleasant enough when one gets a little used to it.'"
