Life and Death of St Kilda, The
The Moving Story of a Vanished Island Community. This book takes us from the earliest known history of St Kilda through to its eventual evacuation in the 1930s, detailing the rise and demise of this unique island culture. And yet, the story does not stop there: Steel goes on to reveal the functions and significance of the islands' modern-day existence as a world heritage site, nature and bird sanctuary, and military base.
