Kintyre poet and historian Angus Martin's interest in placea'names extends back over 40 years. Over 1200 individual place-names are examined, from the well-known to the obscure and forgotten. These names are drawn from a diverse range of sources, from mid-19th century Ordnance Survey maps and field notebooks to fishermen and shepherds whose store of names contained many known only to themselves. Author: Angus Martin. These books have been both my attempt to understand my native Kintyre - its culture and its history - and my celebration of the places and people that have filled my life. From: From the back cover: This book completes Angus Martin's trilogy on the history of his native Kintyre. As with his previous books - The Ring-Net Fishermen and Kintyre: The Hidden Past - the material comes from both written and oral sources. Place-names taken from documentary sources are spelled exactly as they appear in these sources. For the rest, I have used 'standard' spellings wherever these existed.

The book presents a picture of the lives of country folk in Kintyre from the eighteenth century to the early twentieth. It includes accounts of sheep-stealing, New Year's Day shinty battles, and violent encounters between excisemen and the distillers and smugglers of illicit whisky. It is also about the everyday lives of the people; how they worked the land, kept their livestock, built and furnished their homes, prepared food and fuel and celebrated special days. The reader is transported to the fields, farms, homes and markets of the area, which are evoked through a riot of sights, smells and sounds. The book is generously illustrated with photographs both collected and taken by the author. A vivid and tangible portrait of a forgotten way of life, Kintyre Country Life examines not only the agricultural techniques employed at the time, but also extends its scope to the more social elements of life such as the leisure activities of Kintyre farm workers and the games played by their children.
