Description - The Summer Walkers by Timothy Neat

`The Summer Walkers' is the name the crofters of Scotland's north-west Highlands gave the Travelling People - the itinerant tinsmiths, horse-dealers, hawkers and pearl fishers who made their living `on the road'. They are not gypsies, but are indigenous Gaelic-speaking Scots, who, to this day, remain heirs of a vital and ancient culture. In this fascinating and enlightening book, Timothy Neat documents an archetypal and vanishing way of life through their art, oral culture and folk-tales, recording a people and a way of life which is of significant cultural importance to Scotland's national heritage.
