Drs. Archibald Macdonald of Kiltarlity and Angus Macdonald of Killearnan, Clan Donald covers a period of six hundred years, from the foundation of the Lordship of the Isles until 1746, when the clans ceased to exist as separate organized entities. Clan Donald is not the history of one clan, but of several important clans that descend from the old Kingdom of Macdonald. Each of these clans played its part in the history of Scotland until the final disaster of Culloden. Beginning with Somerled, and culminating in an overview of how the Celtic and Roman Churches were influenced by Clan Donald, this book is an all-encompassing reference book of interest not only to members of the Clan, but also to students of the Western Highlands and Isles. Chapters include "Angus Mor (1249-1300)," "John of Islay (1330-1386)," "The Macdonalds of Dunnyveg and the Glens," "The MacDonalds of Keppoch," and "After the Lordship." Illustrations of the arms of clans, photographs of the Scottish landscape, and genealogical charts, maps, and plans make Clan Donald an invaluable guide to what the high chief of Clan Donald calls "an exceedingly complex" history, "certainly not a history to be absorbed readily at a first reading."Read Less
