This is a collection of the works of Eric R. Cregeen selected and edited by Dr Margaret Bennett.

During his life Eric Cregeen pioneered research into the Papers of the Argyll Estate and into the oral tradition of the West Highlands are at the heart of this collection.

Whilst at the University of Edinburgh's School of Scottish Studies, Cregeen tape-recorded tradition bearers in both Gaelic and English, gathering information that is today priceless, such as the descriptions of the last Argyll drover.

He was a founding member of the Scottish Oral History movement, but his tragically early death in 1983 robbed Scotland of a great scholar, social historian and folklorist and of other proposed books.

The book begins with a masterful introductory essay by the editor and also includes a comprehensive bibliography of Cregeen’s work.

This edition brings invaluable and beautifully written material to a new generation keen to reconnect with Scotland’s Highland history and tradition.
