About this book

When R.M. Lockley settled on Skokholm, an uninhabited island off the Pembrokeshire coast, he was 24 years old. It was a boyhood dream to be 'with birds and flowers in some remote place', to live like Robinson Crusoe.

But when war broke out in September 1939, this dream island life had to be abandoned. Knowing he may never return, Lockley began writing about the history and wildlife of his beloved island. He sent what he wrote to his friend and brother-in-law John Buxton – a naturalist captured by the Germans in Norway in 1940. These letters to a prisoner-of-war, intended to solace Buxton in his captivity, became Letters from Skokholm. Little Toller's new edition includes the illustrations by C.F. Tunnicliffe that appeared in the first edition.
