These are the memories of Frederick Rea, an English teacher who became headmaster of Garrynamonie School in South Uist in the 1890s. At that time, the Hebrides were as remote and forbidding to mainlanders as the Antarctic is to us today, and South Uist was one of the poorer districts. Roads were often no more than rough tracks across the mountain moorland or over the storm-swept machair. His Gaelic-speaking pupils were often frozen and starving, and fever epidemics were frequent. Rea's memoirs show how he strove to meet these difficulties. His pupils remember him as a sincere, conscientious man and an excellent teacher. This book also reveals his keen powers of observation, and his interest in the unfamiliar scenes and events he witnessed and recorded. His lack of city comforts was more that compensated for by the wonders of the natural world and the uncommon kindness and generosity of the islanders. Dr. Rea treasured his memories of South Uist for the rest of his life, and his love and respect for the islands is wonderfully conveyed in this vivid testament. biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,education,education and reference,educators,europe,historical,history Education, Birlinn, Limited

ID: 7626146

Frederick Rea, a twenty-one year old teacher from England, was appointed headmaster of a small school on the island of South Uist in 1889. It caused quite a stir because not only was he the first Englishman to be appointed headmaster, but also the first Catholic to be awarded the post since the Reformation. At that time, the Hebrides were as remote and forbidding to mainlanders as the Antarctic is to us today, and this island off the northwest coast of Scotland was one of the poorest. Roads were often nothing more than a rough track across the mountain moorland or over the storm-swept coasts, and the sudden appearance of a rare bicycle was enough to spook island horses and cattle. His Gaelic-speaking pupils were often frozen and starving, and fever epidemics were common. This is a warm, accessible, and elegantly written portrait of island life and one teacher's triumph over quite difficult odds.
