The small island archipelago of St Kilda, which rises majestically from the stormy waters of the North Atlantic, has a magic allure that is both enduring and inexplicable. Philanthropist and genealogist George Seton traveled to St Kilda in the summer of 1876, and this account is the result of that visit. It summarizes previous material about the islands, surveys local incidents from the beginning of the 17th century, and provides a wealth of information about the daily life and unique customs that were soon to die out under the impact of increasing exposure to the outside world. Aside from being one of the most significant books ever written on this extraordinary place, this examination is also a fascinating insight into the mind-set of the Victorian traveler.
