Shetland is one of Britain's natural treasures, a breathtaking archipelago with vast colonies of seabirds amid an ocean teeming with whales, porpoise and seals. Written for the general reader and naturalist alike and lavishly illustrated with evocative sketches by John Busby, colour photographs, maps and diagrams, this handsome volume describes Shetland's wildlife and charts its history, including the Norse influences that have shaped the islands' distinctive culture.
