"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
