Heather Belles; A Modern Highland Story

Author: Sigma
Publisher: W. P. Nimmo, Hay and Mitchell
Publish Date: 1886

A thoroughly Highland story, with courtships and smugglers and a runaway who hides at Monte Carlo and Mentone, and learns such sacred truth that he returns a man of another spirit than that which is distilled among the hills.  We have discovered by means of this volume one fact which was quite unknown to us before. We have frequently heard that Welsh was spoken in the Garden of Eden, but this would seem to be an error, for we read-

"Should Gaelic language be forgot and never brought to mind?

For it was spoke in Paradise in the days of Auld Lange Syne."
