Illustrated card covers, Very Good condition. Revised edition, index. This first book of "The Strathnaver Trilogy" brings into focus and describes in detail the tragic fate of the Mackay country, Duthaic 'Ic Aoidh, in the far north-west of Scotland. The people underwent a transformation from a traditional, tightly-knit Gaelic-speaking community to a downtrodden helot population to be cleared away at the will of the landowner and replaced by sheep. Dr Grimble describes the deep historical background up to the 18th century.
