200 Years of Farming in Sutherland.
Reay D.G. Clarke
This ground breaking and original book conjures up an increasingly lost way of life: that of the sheep farmers of the far north of Scotland – their work, lives, families and how these changed over two hundred years. The book makes an enormous contribution to our understanding of a long neglected facet of Highland history. It does so in the most accessible way: through the long history of one family – the Clarkes – in one place – Eriboll – but which speaks for many.
The history and voice of sheep farmers has long been ignored in the past, to the peril of current and future farming. As the author demonstrates his knowledge and understanding of the land and how it must be managed, we might all benefit from listening to this point of view and approaching the key asset of the north – the land – with more respect than has hitherto been shown.
