Books Info:

St Kilda: A People's History free pdf St Kilda is the most romantic and most romanticised group of islands in Europe. Soaring out of the North Atlantic Ocean like Atlantis come back to life, the islands have captured our imagination for hundreds of years. Their inhabitants, Scottish Gaels who lived off the land, the sea and by birdcatching on high and precipitous cliffs, were long considered to be the Noble Savages of the British Isles, living in a state of natural grace. St Kilda: A People's History explores and portrays the real life of the St Kildans from the Stone Age to the 20th century. Roger Hutchinson, a bestselling author with 40 years' experience of Hebridean islands, digs deep into the archives to paint a vivid picture of the life and death, work and play of a small, proud and self-sufficient people.
