Folksongs and Folklore of South Uist

$16.92 USD

The fruits of a life's work, this marvellous compendium of photographs, stories, folklore and songs has been an established classic since its first publication in 1955. It is a wonderful evocation of the vibrant life and history of South Uist and the Gaelic world in which it played so important a part. Enriched by Margaret Fay Shaw's photography, Folksongs and Folklore of South Uist, is both an introduction to the life of the Gael and a fitting memorial to a world now largely disappeared. The material in the book was mostly collected between 1929 and 1935 during the author's stay in South Lochboisdale
