Based on the successful radio series, ‘Eadar Dà Shaoghal’ (Between Two Worlds), Donald MacLeod’s stories vividly portray the sights and sounds and emotions of his boyhood in the Isle of Bernera, Lewis. Whether in the wonder of Christmas, the bustle of the sheep-fank, a cow gone mad, the novelty of his first day at school, or the eternal peace of the Kirkibost moor, this writer brings the warmth, humour and sorrow of the community which had such an influence on him, to life again.
Donald MacLeod is a psychologist by profession but is also well-known to listeners of BBC Radio nan Gàidheal.
In Gaelic, with facing English translation.
