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.

Vudojar
This historical account of life on St. Kilda is a must read for those that are interested in the history of the island community. It is a welcome addition to any library on life on the outer Hebrides.

What a beautifully written, nostalgic, eclectic, brief-but-thorough study of this remote Hebridean island and its former inhabitants.
