    Author: Donald Sutherland

    I've been asked a question I cannot find the answers to myself.

    As I know there are many avid readers among our ranks, more avid than me I'm certain, I wonder if any of you can help provide these answers.

    The subject in question is a certain author who wrote under the name Donald Sutherland (perhaps a psuedonym? though possibly not) and he is/was not the famous Canadian actor of the same name (as far as I can tell).

    His only book of any fame was the reason behind an overseas friend of mine asking if I knew more about this author, which I don't

    The book is a quite interesting and entertaining Biography, purporting to be about his own life growing up as the ill cast son of a well-to-do middle class Oban family and relates tales of the ordinary highland folk, their ways and distractions which painted in his story. Perfect reading for an ever so slightly "soppy" and definitely quite "petit bourgeois" Frenchman (who's also a devoted Chasseur des Sangliers) who enjoys fueling his romantic notions of being transported to another life as Scots country lad, in a forgotten time. Cheeky git forgets I'm just such a soul, but "Am nae frae Oban or the heelans!", so clearly nothing romantic about my life

    Anyways: The title of his book is:

    Butt and Ben A highland Boyhood by Donald Sutherland

    In short: Can any of you shed any light on who this author actually was/is and if he wrote anything else?

    The author I enquired about has the full name Donald Robert Grant Sutherland .... D. R. G. Sutherland.

    The one you've mentioned is D. M. G. Sutherland and I never knew about him, there may be a familial connection and there's certainly a reading list which I might have been expected to find.... Thanks.

    Can't see anything else by him.
