The story of the inhabitants of St Kilda, and their final abandonment of their homes in 1930, is reminder of the fragility of small communities. St Kilda is now bereft of its indigenous population, but has become a centre for study of the natural world. This text reflects on these changes. The essays, written by distinguished historians and scientists, describe the history, buildings, archaeology, bird, animal and marine-life of St Kilda - exploring both the past and possible future. The book also features a collection of photographs.
