The material, from both oral and written sources, tells of everyday lives - working the land, raising livestock, building and furnishing homes, finding fuel and preparing food and celebrating special days. There are also accounts of sheep-stealing, shinty battles, and violent encounters between excise-men and the distillers - and smugglers - of illicit whisky. Illustrated with maps of the peninsula and photographs and reproductions taken or collected by the author.
