tales and traditions of the lews

In January I finished Tales and Traditions of the Lews by Donald Macdonald. It had some interesting bits and pieces, but frustrating in its lack of sources and structure and background info. You couldn't always tell when things were or how reliable they were. It's one of those books that was out of print for a long time and had a great reputation, but a bit disappointing when it came to it. I'm not sure I learned anything that useful or interesting from it, and it didn't have an index to speak of.
