Duthchas Nan Gaidheal by John MacInness

Book Description

Having spent some five decades recording the Gaelic lore of tradition-bearers from all over Scotland and Canada on behalf of the School of Scottish Studies, he writes eloquently on an inheritance analysed with intellectual rigour. This collection of seminal articles covers many aspects of life, history and literature in the Scottish Highlands, from clan sagas to Clearances, from the supernatural to Sorley MacLean. Although these articles are profound in their insights, they are written clearly and unpretentiously, and are accessible to the non-specialist.

Author Biography - John MacInness

Born in Uig, Lewis in 1930, John MacInnes spent most of his childhood on the Isle of Skye and the island of Raasay. There he acquired a keen interest in the traditional songs, folktales and folk culture of the Scottish Highlands, which led him towards formal study and the awards of degrees and distinctions at the University of Edinburgh. He was appointed to the School of Scottish Studies in 1958, and continued there until his retirement in 1993.
