Reviews

"Nicolson's chronicle is a fine book. Readers . . . will be duly awed by his delicately layered story." --Erica Sanders, The New York Times Book Review

"No other book has given me as rich a sense of what makes a small island so revelatory of our life on Earth." --London Review of Books

"A lovely biography of a place: the Shiants, in the Hebrides, are an island threesome of grass, wind, and birds that have had a long human presence and are sometimes the home of travel and environmental writer Nicolson . . . Rich with history and curiosity." --Kirkus Reviews

"An adventure story with Hemingway highs and is also unselfconscious, wonderfully idiosyncratic, and, above all, beautifully written." --Literary Review
