    A new book of dances is always a delight, and this book is set to inspire the dancer, the caller and the teacher of social dances. There are new dances, well-known dances, and dances that Greig does differently in this book and thus it is an adventure of dance. The calling hints come in very handy for the inexperienced caller.

    scene in natural history. My feet encased in stout "tackety" boots, I had waded down two of Waster Lunny's fields to the glen burn: in summer the never-failing larder from which, with wriggling worm or garish fly, I can any morning whip a savory breakfast; in the winter time the only thing in the valley that defies the ice-king's chloroform. They did not run around barefooted in summer, nor wear “tackety” or hobnailed boots in winter. Not that Donald scorned either of these pedal comforts. Bare feet were fine and cool and “tackety” boots gave a fellow a grand feeling of heftiness in clumping around the house, in kicking tin cans, and in scuffling up sparks through friction.

Bare Feet and Tackety Boots is the tale of the last survivor of those who were born and raised on the island of Rhum before World War I. It presents a social history and personal anecdote of a way of life gone not long ago but already almost forgotten.

The island seems to catch all the cloud and rain on the prevailing wind, unlike Canna from where Rum is so often enveloped in cloud. The local population were horribly exploited by the lairds in the 19th and early 20th centuries, which you can read all about in 'Bare Feet and Tackety Boots' by Archie Cameron (Luath Press, ).

Uses. Hobnailed boots (in Scotland "tackety boots") are boots with hobnails (nails inserted into the soles of the boots), usually installed in a regular pattern, over the sole.

They usually have an iron horseshoe-shaped insert, called a heel iron, to strengthen the heel, and an iron may also have steel hobnails project below the sole and provide traction on soft.
