A Summer in Skye

£8.99

by Alexander Smith

In 1864 Smith spent six weeks exploring the island of Skye. These weeks were among the most contented of his life and A Summer in Skye, his magnificent prose poem, celebrates the island and its people. A keen observer of life, the author portrays the islanders, both at work and at play, and many customs that have since died out. His magnificent descriptions of the island’s landscape are among the finest ever written. He was also enthralled by the history and folklore of Skye.
