FOR A LARGER IMAGE RIGHT CLICK AND OPEN IN A NEW TAB. Although the name John horne is known thoughout Caithness for his dialect poems these have been out of print for over fifty years. A few well worn copies of Poems and Plays published in 1923 have beEn handed down and some of his classical dialect poems have been repirnted at times in the John o'Groat Journal. His total literary output was very high but only a small fraction was in dialect - indeed he only published one other dialect book, A Canny Countryside. This contains stories about characters of the mythical Caithness village of Knockdry and the last edition was printed in 1906. In the early thirties he was working on a new edition with extra chapters but died before being able to accomplish this.
