Product description

From the Author

'This book draws its information from ... the indigenous, first-hand experience of the writer's early life and the more formal information extracted from a variety of historical documents. This is an intriguing double helix that gives the book much of its interest and freshness and the feeling that it is the beginning of a study which could be carried on by subsequent students ... The book beautifully reflects the man.'
Finlay Macleod, in his Introduction --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

The eventful history of the Hebridean Isle of Lewis stretches back to the time of the Norse invaders (and there are significant prehistoric remains from before that time). Over the centuries, Lewis has seen a succession of powerful landlords come and go, and this ground-breaking book recounts the long-fought struggle over the land. It also describes many aspects of the islanders' way of life over the years -- agriculture and fishing, education in Gaelic and English, the Church and the people, law and order and smuggling, emigration and the armed services are just some of the topics included in this wide-ranging survey. Combining original research with a deep personal knowledge of the subject, Donald Macdonald's 'Lewis: A History of the Island' is a remarkable example of local history. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
