Jura

Jura: Island of Deer This work surveys Jura, one of the largest of the Inner Hebrides. The barrenness of Jura's landscape has meant that it has always had a smaller population than its neighbours, and was often overlooked in affairs of the times. However, Jura had its part to play through the centuries and, perhaps because of its isolation, it has a fascinating story to tell of Campbell domination, of the hardships endured by its people and of it contribution to emigration. Youngson not only presents the broad sweep of the island's history, from the Mesolithic period to the present day, but also focuses on other aspects, such as Jura's natural history and geography and the legends, poetry and song produced by its inhabitants.
