I Crossed the Minch Summary


I Crossed the Minch by Louis MacNeice

In 1937, Louis MacNeice and his friend Nancy visited the Hebrides. Following loosely in the footsteps of Johnson and Boswell, MacNeice describes with distinctive candour the people, customs and landscapes of the Hebrides. Alienated from the way of life he encountered in the islands yet utterly fascinated by it, Louis MacNeice provides a unique insight into a now vanished culture and, as such, the book is a fascinating social historical document of Scottish rural life in the late 1930s.
