The American author Margaret Fay Shaw in her own words in her introudction:
"This book contains folklore & folksongs taken down in a small community on the south side of Lochboisdale on the Island of South Uist in the Scottish Hebrides, where I lived during the years between 1929 & 1935 and near where I lived ever since. It is an attempt to give a true record of a splendid people who are crofter-fishermen, of their occupations, interests and pleasures."
This book remains well bound and in good condition internally . The blue cover boards have faded to light grey at spine and at top part of boards and at the sides near spine. There is a small tear of the cloth binding at top back board where it joins the spine.
The inside pages have age-related tanning throughout but remain clean and bright.
Overall this is an attractive as well as being an important book.
