Tells the story of this sixth generation blacksmith Review by Frank Lessiter – American Farriers Journal
More than 25 years ago, during a visit with David Wilson in Scotland, he took me to see the blacksmith shop and attached house that six generations of his family had called home. Located in the sleepy little hamlet of Kilmany, the homestead is just a few kilometres from the world famous old St Andrews Links where golf got its start in 1552. Wilson’s newly published 132-page Sparks from the Smiddy book tells the story of this sixth generation blacksmith who lives in nearby Balmullo. It was written with Andrew Arbuckle, the farming editor for The Scotsman newspaper. (Posted on 26/11/2015)
a lovely nostalgic glimpse into rural life Review by Sara Walker – Horse and Countryside Magazine
This is the life story of David Wilson – a 6th generation blacksmith and champion farrier. It will make you appreciate all the skill and knowledge that goes into shoeing a horse, and it’s also a lovely nostalgic glimpse into rural life. An unusual present for anyone who loves horses.
