Reviews

  • "'The fine detail of the book clearly reveals how much nerve and hope (and judgement and error) it took to turn a disused barn into one of the most radical educational ventures in the country, with sometimes unlikely cart-pushers. This book is also available in Gaelic, thus becoming part of the revival it celebrates'."

    The Scotsman
  • "'First and foremost as account of the formidable group of visionary Gaels who created the first Gaelic college of the modern age, this book attempts to analyse the contradictions which surround the current situation of the language'."

    Scotland on Sunday
  • "'A highly readable journey through the surge of interest in the language'."

    Aberdeen Press & Journal
  • "'Hutchinson's determination to put it into historical context has produced a significant commentary on the fortunes of Gaelic. He reminds us of each hard-won milestone on the road to some kind of meaningful government commitment'."

    Scottish Books
