<p>The Last Stronghold: Scottish Gaelic Traditions of Newfoundland, Breakwater Books, St. John's, Newfoundland and Canongate Publishers, Edinburgh, l989. (Winner of the Michaelis Ratcliffe Prize for Folklore).</p><p>Synopsis:</p><p>The traditions that have come down to us of the Gaelic diaspora of the 18th & 19th century rarely mention Newfoundland. Only in a few anecdotes, attributable to sailors and other travellers, are there hints that a Gaelic community once flourished in that remote land. And since our information was confined to those tantalisingly vague and brief reports, it simply never occurred to us that Gaelic might actually have survived into our own times. Margaret Bennett's book has changed all that.</p></o:p></o:p></o:p>
