About this title


This is a memoir of Angus MacDonald who was born in North Uist in 1900 and who died in Sydney, Australia in 1975. "He was almost certainly the last fully trained "seanachaidh" in Scottish Gaeldom and probably the last in the Celtic world. With him there died a tradition of oral history which stretched back to the days before the Roman Empire."
