St. Kilda: Island on the Edge of the World. I wasn't disappointed reading this book about the Kilda Islands laying west of the Hebrides
St. St. Kilda is an archipelago in the Western Isles of Scotland, some 40 miles from the next nearest inhabited island. For more than 2000 years the island was inhabited by a small population, eking out an existance in near splendid isolation in the harsh conditions of the North Atlantic. I wasn't disappointed reading this book about the Kilda Islands laying west of the Hebrides. It was a wonderful read and realized that for centuries these islands were inhabited and provided a living for its people.
