Sons of the Sod

Sons of the Sod

W.G. Lyttle

WG Lyttle (1844-1896) was one of the most prolific and well-known Ulster authors of the 1800s. He regularly performed at various public events as ‘Robin Gordon of Ballycuddy’ and for a time ran the North Down and Bangor Gazette.

Sons of the Sod is set in the 1860s, around Carrowdore in the Ards Peninsula — in the heat of the Tenant-Right Movement. The events and characters in this novel are based on real people and events as recorded by Lyttle in his capacity as a young journalist.
