history of a single parish in Argyll - but a very large parish
and one so placed as to be almost an island; although specifically
a history of Morvern, the author presents the material in such
a way as to provide an insight into the way of life of the inhabitants
of a wider area. He highlights the impact of the economic changes
of the nineteenth century, including famine and emigration. The
fruit of extensive research, this important and definitive work
was first published in 1980 but was unobtainable for many years.
