Donal Grant Pt. 1: Live from Castle Warlock with David Jack

"I will never be the man I was! the thoucht o' my heart's ta'en frae me. I canna think aboot things the same w'y I used. There's naething sae bonny as afore. Whan the life slips frae him, hoo can a man gang on livin'!" 

So begins the passage from Donal Grant read by Scotland's own David Jack. You can read along with him beginning at the bottom of page 13 in the Sunrise Centenary Edition, or at the top of page 5 in the Johannesen Classic Edition.
