    schema:reviewBody ""Rev. Alexander Youngson was minister of the established Church of Scotland at Strathy 1909-1930. His remaining diaries provide a valuable insight into this period within living memory of the Clearances, when a growing grass-roots democracy existed alongside the deference given to class, wealth and status. Covering the years 1911, 1912, 1915 and 1919, the diaries span the time of the Great War and the book thus examines both the impact of the war on this Highland community and the struggle for land that followed the peace. Other sources from local and national archives are used to explain the brief diary entries and to describe the almost vanished world of the people, institutions, daily life and faith of Sutherland's most northerly townships. Frank Bardgett, a Church of Scotland minister whose previous books have covered both the Reformation in Scotland and the home missionary movement, also writes for those seeking to understand the practice of Christian ministry and armies that the ministers of the established Church displayed well-meaning institutional arrogance in taking all decision-making themselves."--Jacket." ;
