Fear De Mhuinntir Sholais, A Sollas Man By Fred Macamhlaigh
Cruinneachadh Bàrdachd Dà-Chànanach | Bilingual Poetry Collection
Fred Macaulay was a man who knew his listeners and the community in which they lived, and a man who understood the power of the spoken and written word.
His poetry, published as one collection for the first time, commemorates his love for Sollas and the land of Uist; they record his thoughts and observations on love and life, and they celebrate the esteem and deep affection in which he held those who were dear to him.
The book is edited by Fred’s daughter, Lindsay Macaulay, with Bill Innes providing an English translation of the poetry and a foreword by Jo Macdonald.
