The Naughty Little Book of Gaelic
by Michael Newton • illustrations • 64 pages
ALL THE SCOTTISH GAELIC YOU NEED TO CURSE, SWEAR, DRINK, SMOKE AND FOOL AROUND.
Scottish Highlanders and their descendants are no better and no worse than any other people where “sinful” behaviour is concerned. Morality and social conventions changed dramatically during the 19th century. Most people engaged in recording and commenting on Highland life were puritanical ministers and priests who left out the racy bits—topics covered in this book of Gaelic with English translations.
