The life and death of St Kilda

The way of life on the St Kilda archipelago, west of the Hebrides, was harsh and demanding, but also viable, sustainable, and in some ways even utopian. Tom Steel's book investigates that unique culture and recounts its rapid disintegration following the end of St Kilda's isolation in the 20th century.
