On this sad day, the great clans died before the muskets of Cumberland's Army at Culloden and the clan system was broken forever among the Highland people. Often the people were hanged for no reason, imprisoned and deported without trial and their music and dress forbidden on pain of death. They suffered the indignities of a wandering race. Often their people were hanged for no reason, imprisoned and deported without trial, and their music and dress forbidden on pain of death. Their ancient culture crumbled and fell leaving the Highlands only for sportsmen, opportunists, sheep and tourists. Yet in the Highland regiments, we have a remarkable paradox, and the true proof of the effectiveness of the clan system. Bound on his stainless honor to his regiment, the Highlander watched the destruction of his proud race by the barbarous and bigoted people he served. ; 224 pages

10 Waite, Charlie Scottish Islands.
London Constable 1989 0094675708 / 9780094675704 Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
199 pages, approximately 50 full-page color maps, color illustrations, cloth, DJ, 9 by 10 inches, very good. From the dust jacket: "In this book Waite turns his discerning eye to the remote and beautiful Scottish islands - the Inner and Outer Hebrides, whose landscape is pared down to its barest essentials. Fascinated by the islands and disturbed by them in almost equal parts, he has captured their essence in 85 of his inimitable photographs, which, with their brief explanatory captions, brilliantly convey the Hebrides' haunting visual impact. In a short Introduction, Waite also explains something of how he works, and provides amateur cameramen with some thought-provoking ideas about landscape photography in general.
