on the Edge of the World: Story... of St.Kilda. A part of
Britain but a world apart, St Kilda society existed almost completely
isolated from the mainstream of civilization for more than 1000
years. Increased contact with the mainland during the 19th century
brought about the downfall of what many once regarded as an
ideal society. Missionaries and tourists brought money, disease
and despotism. In 1930 the islanders, who could no longer support
themselves, were finally evacuated at their own request. The
island, which is difficult to access, is now a nature reserve.
The island's story was chiefly recorded by outsiders. This book
examines the island and the St Kildan society as a microcosm
of a process which is consistently taking place, often on a
much larger scale, all over the world. St Kilda remains a symbol
of the ability of man to survive in the most hostile of environments
and it remains a fascination unique among islands. This new
edition of Charles Maclean's study of the island contains an
introduction highlighting recent findings about St Kilda.
Fulmar and the Rock: A Fable of St... Kilda.
St. Kilda: The Continuing Story of the... Island. The story
of the inhabitants of St Kilda, and the final abandonment of
their homes in 1930, is reminder of the fragility of small communities.
St Kilda is now bereft of its indigenous population, but has
become a centre for study of the natural world. This text reflects
on these changes. The essays, written by distinguished historians
and scientists, describe the history, buildings, archaeology,
bird, animal and marine-life of St Kilda - exploring both the
past and possible future. The book also features a collection
