iblack titles spine; llustrated by a map of the crofting lands & line drawings; "many people's image of crofts and crofting is one of trim thatched cottages nestling in protected glens, the soil of which yields all that is necessary to ensure a good life of self-sufficiency. There is little reality to this idyllic picture. Life on the crofts is and always has been, hard and seldom materially rewarding. And yet, over the years, a rich tradition has evolved in crofting areas; a tradition marked by community spirit, personal warmth, and iron will. Crofting is simply a way of life which transcends the values of modern materialistic society, a unique culture in which man himself is truly one with his environment. Katharine Stewart lived on a croft for many years."; previous owner's name inside front cover & tiny mark on bibliography page; titles, contents, bibliography, dedication & map pages are followed by 64 pages of illustrated text.
