The Gaelic Otherworld: John Gregorson Campbell's Superstitions of the Highlands & Islands of Scotland and Witchcraft & Second Sight in the Highlands & Islands
John Gregorson Campbell (1836-91) was one of a number of outstanding folklorists who collected and published the traditions of their native Highlands and Islands during the second half of the nineteenth century and the first few years of the twentieth. In addition to a trail-blazing introduction which places these Highland beliefs firmly in their social context, Ronald Black provides substantial explanatory endnotes and a comprehensive new index, all of which allow The Gaelic Otherworld to take its proper place as a classic of world folklore.
