An wonderfully illustrated picture book about the cluster of tiny islands off the west coast of Scotland, inhabited for thousands of years, that was evacuated in 1930. Based on accounts from Norman John Gillies, who was born and raised on the island of Hirta, the book leads the reader through the daily and seasonal way of life led by the inhabitants. An account of a unique way of life, now sadly gone forever.
