Country Bairns: Growing Up 1900-1930

Synopsis

"Country Bairns is a unique record of rural childhood - a fascinating glimpse into the lives of children in the Scottish countryside from the turn of the century onwards. In their own words, the children of Western Isles crofters tell their stories alongside those of the more prosperous Lowland and North-East farmers and farm workers, describing their daily routines, their relationships with their parents and their various roles in making a living. The result is a thorough sociological and historical study of childhood, providing a commentary on the social and economic forces which limited and propelled these young lives, shaping the adults they became. It is a rich oral history which puts a new perspective on Scottish country life." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
