Product Description

Publisher: Luath (March 2012)

Author: Katharine Stewart

Katherine Stewart examines the ways of life of Highland women through the spoken, sung and written histories they have left behind. From the ancient druids to modern naturalists, farming girls to midwives, Women of the Highlands traces the lives of women through medieval times, during the Clearance years, and in the aftermath of the Industrial Revolution. Individual stories intertwine with overall history to create a sense of Highland culture that is as intriguing as it is compelling. (pb)
