Description - Country Life in Scotland by Alexander Fenton

"Country Life in Scotland" is the updated version of "Scottish Country Life" - the classic account of rural life in Scotland. Professor Alexander Fenton provides a vivid picture of the way in which the countryside has changed over the past 300 years and the people who changed with it; their ways of working, their tools and equipment, their homes and way of life, and their food. It is a treasurehouse of factual material on rural life as it was lived in the Lowlands and in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland's past.
