About this book

Written as an account of the Percy Sladen Trust Expeditions to the New Hebrides in 1922-3 and 1927, this is one of the first detailed studies of the flora and fauna of these distant islands. It describes the native Hebrideans and the reasons for their depopulation. The author, a biologist and zoologist, then details the insect, avian and mammalian inhabitants of the islands and their behaviours.
