These poems, in Scots and English, look at life in a Scottish village before, during and after the First World War. The central character is Tuim-heidit Tam, a simple-minded and kind-hearted man who, being unfit for military service, does what he can at home. The title describes Tam himself - useful and still beautiful despite a little damage. The world is a better place for the likes of him.
