Scotland: An Intimate Portrait

Przednia okładka
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1990 - 276

In this informative and amusing portrait, Professor MacGregor recounts the history and origins of golf, kilts, bagpipes, and other distinctly Scottish associations, revealing a Scotland lesser known--the rugged and romantic land that retains much of its own ancient tradition and culture.
