The three books in this collection contain tunes composed by Jack Purves. The tunes in Book 1 were composed in a twelve-month period during 2000 and 2002. Those in Book 2 and 3 were composed over an eighteen-month period in 2003 and 2004.

Purves served in the 2nd Battalion of the Gordon Highlanders from 1945 to 1948 under Pipe Major Alec Cupples. In 1957 he played with the Powell River Coy Pipe Band.

The editor, Robert Euman, served with the Royal Scots from 1939-46 and became Pipe Major of the 8th Battalion.
