    Gavin Maxwell is best remembered as the author of Ring of Bright Water, but his love affair with the west of Scotland began in a shark fishery on the tiny Hebridean island of Soay. This, his first book, vividly evokes the drama of the shark hunt, the men who worked with him, the frustrations of starting a new business in post-war Scotland, and the beauty of the islands and their wildlife.
