Product description

Synopsis

This collection includes every type of tale found on the island of South Uist, from Fingalian heroes and ghost stories to international folktales and humorous and historical anecdotes.

About the Author

Born in 1869, Angus MacLellan's life encompassed two centuries and great changes in the Scottish way of life, from rural to industrial, from island to mainland. He left Uist to go into camp with the militia, before working for farmers on the mainland in Perthshire and Argyll. He later returned to the family croft on South Uist to work at inshore fishing and crafting. John Lorne Campbell was the author of numerous books and articles, including Canna: the Story of a Hebridean Island, the island that was his home from 1938 to his death in 1996. He was instrumental in ensuring that the island pass into the care of the National Trust for Scotland in order that its natural and cultural heritage be protected.
