This is the story of the island, moving from its earliest inhabitants up to the present day and the promise of a new era of community ownership. Drawing extensively on oral history from islanders themselves, and local archives, the book has stories of clan histories, pastimes, wartime, exile, childhood, crofting and fishing. This is a delightful study of a Hebridean island and conveys beautifully the islanders feeling about a sense of place and of a certain flavour of life.
