Jess Smith

/Raploch Community Campus

Raploch Reading group will host Jess Smith who was born into a family of Scottish Travellers.  She spent the first 17 years of her life as one of Scotland’s wanderers of the roads.  Her cultural roots, familiar campsites and extended family (once referred to as Tinker folk) would one day present the backdrop for a series of books.  Promising her father that one day she’d write a book on the culture, Jess felt more at home writing about her ‘own’ journey; Jessie’s Journey was published in 2002 and went into the Scottish best sellers list reaching number one.  This spurned her to pen another two biographical books, a story book and a novel.  It was after this with her father’s promise in mind she began researching the wider history leading to Way of the Wanderers, packed with facts and history.
