About this book

Craig Whyte was warden of the RSPB reserve on Rousay in the Orkney islands in the early 1990s. This account of the abundant wildlife of a beautiful island is in the great tradition of natural history writing - at once evocative and grounded in empirical observation. The line drawings (some of species, some landscapes) add much to this charming book.

A book to comfort and delight all those who fear that naturalists and natural history are on the decline.
