Anthology of Scottish-Gaelic Literature of Canada
With a foreword by Diana Gabaldon, author of Outlander
From Cape Breton to Vancouver, Gaelic-speaking communities could be found all over Canada from the late-18th to the mid-20th century. This is the first anthology of prose and poetry – mostly literary, some historical in tone – to give voice to the experience of Gaelic Canadians. A unique resource, it covers a wide range of territory and time, allowing Gaels to express their own opinions about a broad set of themes: migration, politics, religion, family life, identity, social organizations and more.
Michael Newton has expertly contextualized a large amount of material, showing the rich variety and national extent of the Gaelic experience in Canada, opening it up to an English-speaking readership.
