Softcover with illustrated laminated paper covers, New. First edition, pp 213, colour illustrations, bibliography. In this book the authors present many unpublished place names from Upper Deeside and from counties in the Highlands beyond. These were heard from indigenous folk back to 1941. Names are given with phonetic spellings, so that readers can pronounce them accurately, and in most cases with translations from Gaelic, Norse, Scots or Pictish into English. The book is richly illustrated with 130 photographs of places and informants. Of interest to residents and visitors, it should help preserve for the future an important aspect of local identity and language.
