In this evocative volume, Paul Ramsay, a farmer and landowner who lives on the edge of the Highlands, recounts the history of this fascinating region, focusing in particular on the changing relationships between the people and the land since humans first arrived in the area 8,000 years ago. With colorful tales about the various clans, including the MacGregors, Fresers, and Campbells, Ramsay builds a picture of Gaelic culture and shows how a unique way of life has evolved over the centuries as the people have adapted to meet new challenges.
