Scotland's history has been told many times, but never exclusively by its women. This book takes a unique perspective on dramatic national events as well as ordinary life, as experienced by women down the centuries. From the saintly but severe medieval Queen Margaret to today's first minister Nicola Sturgeon, it encompasses women from all stations of class and fame and notoriety, offering a tantalising view of what happened to them, and how they felt.

Drawing on court and kirk records, exchequer rolls and treasurer's accounts, diaries and memoirs, chap books and newspapers, government reports and eye-witness statements, Scotland: Her Story brings to life the half of history that has for too long been hidden or ignored. Features material by from a hugely diverse range of authors, including:The Maid of Norway * Princess Matilda * St Margaret * Margaret Tudor * Mary, Queen of Scots * Lady Grizel Baillie * Elsie Inglis * Mary Slessor * Catherine Dickens * Jane Carlyle * Madeline Smith * Catherine Carswell * Willa Muir * Nan Shepherd * Muriel Gray * Sue Black * Sally Magnusson * The Queen Mother * Rona Cameron * Elaine C. Smith * Evelyn Glennie * Jessie Kesson * Winnie Ewing * Muriel Spark * Tilda Swinton * Liz Lochhead * Lulu * Janice Galloway * Jackie Kay * Ali Smith * Liz McColgan * Mhairi Black * Judy Murray * Nicola Benedetti * Nicola Sturgeon
