Gunn ¶ 2 Review Butcher's Broom is one of Gunn's epic recreations of a key period in Scottish history the Highland clearances of the nineteenth century Gunn captures the spirit of Highland culture the sense of community and tradition in a manner that speaks to our own timeAt the centre of the novel is Dark. Evocative would be the word I think Gunn treats the story of evicted crofters here with a very emotional and gut wrenching close lens I think it was excellently done weaving together drastically different viewpoints to highlight the tragedy and the inevitability of the change in society that resulted in many of the Clearances Some beautiful prose in here and some that I just let wash over me like Lewis Grassic Gibbons meaning it was a little too far from my experience to understand the dialect but I just kept going and was rewarded with a satisfying if not happy conclusion
