Dr Gaskell's pioneering study of social and economic change in a west Highland parish during the last century has come to be regarded as a classic of local history, a book which raises issues that are still of general and indeed of national importance. But Morvern Transformed is more than a study of history: it is (to quote Professor R. H. Campbell's new Introduction) 'a fascinating portrayal of a way of life which, only a century old, is already as different from the present as it was in its own day from the way of life another century before.'

Morvern is a roughly triangular-shaped peninsula lying west of Fort William and at the foot of the Great Glen. This work was first published in 1863, but its value today lies in its encapsulation of the past, and its evocation of the scenery of Morvern and its surroundings. It speaks of Morvern, but describes a whole breed of West Highlanders. It clarifies the Highlander's own view of the Clan, a very necessary exercise at a time when notions of what a Clan is, are becoming romantically distanced from the reality.
