There are a number of books devoted to the human history of St Kilda, the most remote community of the British Isles, but few concentrate on the wildlife that inhabits the archipelago. In this fantastic book John A. Love discusses the varied wildlife that has made St Kilda it's home since the last ice-age. Drawing on both historical accounts and personal observations this book covers the geology, plants, insects, birds, mammals and marine life of St Kilda, paying special attention to St Kilda's unique species of wren and mouse.
