A Little Book of Gaelic Proverbs

Proverbs give a special insight into the minds of our forebears. This beautiful little book recaptures the atmosphere of Celtic Scotland, a society of farmers and hunters, counting their wealth in corn and cows, with time to fight as well as make verses, and a highly-developed code of behaviour. Such a society is likely to be a rich source of proverbs, and over a hundred are included, in Gaelic and English translations, with stunning colour illustrations.
