Took so long pouring over this book, I just incurred my first-ever library fine! Blogged about Johnson's chapter on The Highlands. The essay can be viewed at my blog link on goodreads.
I enjoyed this, but it's too much work to read around the tone of the 18th century. Haven't enough time left on this plane to fit in all the books I'd like to read that were written after the 19th century, let alone earlier books.
