About this book

When reading through the diaries of her father, the well-known naturalist and writer R. M. Lockley, Ann Lockley was struck by the differences between what he had written and what she remembered. So here, she gives her side of things.

When visitors to Skokholm observed this small child on Skokholm, some considered she was deprived, but Ann herself sees her life there as rich and happy, with her ponies and goats. and the wildlife of the island.

A readable and enjoyable story about an unusual childhood.
