An excellent insight life in the Highlands and Islands,
By A Customer
This review is from: Last of the Free: A Millennial History of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland (Hardcover)
This book provides an excellent insight into the lives of the people of the Highlands and islands of Scotland. The book charts the history of the population from prehistoric time to the present day, illustrating their hardship and struggle through the ages against political, religious and economic oppression. The book isn't all about battles, clans and chiefs, but focusses on the ordinary people going about their daily business trying to survive in a harsh political and physical environment. I would recommend this book as a historical introduction to anyone thinking of venturing into this beautifull area of Scotland or just wanting to know more about the grass roots of highland history.
