Although sometimes threatened by the inroads of commerce and tourism, Harris remains in many ways idyllic, the most resonant and romantic of all the Hebridean islands. Covering the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, this work also makes side trips to Barra, the southernmost of the Hebrides, and to St Kilda the most remote of the Scottish islands.
For many armchair travelers the Outer Hebrides of Scotland epitomize the beauty and remoteness of island life. And the most dramatic of all the Hebrides is Harris, where the legendary Harris Tweed is woven by local crofters, reflecting the strength, durability, and integrity of life on Harris. Harris has dramatic mountains and huge, pristine sandy beaches bordering the open Atlantic. Yeadon captures in words and through his evocative line drawings the life of the island people, their folkways and humour and the simple life of crofting and fishing which have hardly changed in hundreds of years. Although sometimes threatened by the inroads of commerce and tourism, Harris remains in many ways idyllic, the most resonant and romantic of all the Hebridean islands. Yeadon also makes side trips to Barra, the southernmost of the Hebrides, to the Shiant Islands with author Adam Nicolson and to the fabled St. Kilda, the most remote of all the Scottish islands, 50 miles out in the Atlantic, wreathed in legend and history. There are 35 line drawings by the author.
