"In April 1932, the eminent Gaelic scholar, John Lorne Campbell, visited Cape Breton Island and Antigonish country in Eastern Nova Scotia. His purpose was to discover how the descendants of emigrants from the Scottish Highlands and Hebrides had fared in their new country, and to gauge the extent to which they had maintained their Gaelic culture. Five years later, he returned to make this collection of Gaelic song and compare it with the surviving tradition in the Western Isles. This book is the result of that expedition and shows that much which had been lost from the original Highland song tradition formed part of a living repertory in the New World."--BOOK JACKET
The furrow behind me; the autobiography of a Hebridean Crofter by Angus MacLellan( Book )

9 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"MacLellan's reminiscences were first recorded in Gaelic in the early 1960s, and later transcribed and translated by John Lorne Campbell. Written in an unusual yet captivating prose style, this is a life story in the oral tradition. Born in 1869 into a poverty-stricken crofting community on South Uist, Angus MacLellan spent his childhood and youth with his family before travelling to the island to find work first in the militia and then on the farms of the mainland. His travels came to an end when he returned to assist, and eventually to succeed his parents on their croft on South Uist in 1900." --Provided by publisher

A very civil people : Hebridean folk, history, and tradition by John Lorne Campbell( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Working from within the tradition, with a sound knowledge of the language, its evolution and cultural milieu, Campbell saw himself as 'setting the record straight' on Highland and Hebridean history. Here he writes authoritatively on the history, language and literature, oral narrative and tradition, poetry and song of the Hebrides, but his methodology, interpretations and conclusions offer lessons for the wider study of Highland, Scottish and British history."--Jacket
