This is a comprehensive collection of stories, from the geographical span of the long chain of islands known as The Outer Hebrides. Some are well-known tales, and some have been collected by the author, but all are retold in the natural voice of a local man. You will find selkies and water-horses, and encounter the blue-men of the stream, who test the eloquence of mariners who venture into the tidal streams around the Shiant Islands. There are tales from islands now uninhabited, like the archipelago of St Kilda, and their yarns from bustling harbors. So grab a copy and dive in.
