A Natural History of St Kilda


In stock


There are many books about the cultural history of St Kilda that focus on the resilient people who lived there, but this is the first book to focus on the natural history, for which the archipelago is equally famous.

A natural history of St Kilda is an account of what scientists and naturalists who visited the Island between 1697 and 1938 experienced: not only the people’s way of life but also the wildlife around them and the ways in which it is important to the Islanders survival.
