Of the books written on the Scottish Highlands, many have been penned by outsiders with only the most superficial knowledge of Gaelic culture and language. In this new edition of his classic work, the late Calum I. Maclean, a Gaelic-speaking Highlander, interprets the traditions, culture, and ways of life of his native land. He is concerned not so much with places, beauty spots, or scenery as with the Highlanders themselves in their own self-created environment. Writing largely of individuals, Maclean makes clear why Highland culture is unique in the world—and if lost, could never be recovered or recreated.
