“I was raised among women of enormous strength and character.”




“I was raised among women of enormous strength and character.”

So writes Joni Buchanan in the foreword to this celebratory work, filling a long-neglected gap in Hebridean history. With a wealth of detail and intensive research, Joni tells the story of island women – their quick wit and political determination, hands that were deft with the loom and with the gutting knife, strong backs for croft work, endurance through times of tragedy and compassion and fortitude on the frontlines of war and disease.

The women in these pages travel the world, wage war against injustice and nurture their cultural heritage, all the time with two languages on their tongue, a light in their eye and undimmable spirit and humour.

“A glorious account of the real ‘influencers’ of our shared island culture.” – Cathy Macdonald, journalist and broadcaster

“Tha e math cothrom a bhith againn sgeulachdan a leughadh mu bhoireannaich às na h-eileanan a bha ri saothair air feadh nan eilean, na dùthcha agus an t-saoghail air fad.” – Anna NicSuain, MBE, Iar Mhorair-ionaid nan Eilean Siar
