Para Handy has been sailing his way into the affections of generations of Scots since he first weighed anchor in the pages of the Glasgow Evening News in 1905. The master mariner and his crew - Dougie the mate, Macphail the engineer, Sunny Jim and the Tar - all play their part in evoking the irresistible atmosphere of a bygone age when puffers sailed between West Highland ports and the great city of Glasgow. This definitive edition contains all three collections published in the author's lifetime.

Neil Munro (1863?1930), a native of Inveraray, was a journalist by profession and for many years was the editor of the Glasgow Evening News. He is best known for his comic tales about Para Handy, but he also produced a number of historical and contemporary novels, as well as poetry and non-fiction.
