In 1945, Gavin Maxwell (1914-1969), best-known as the author of Ring of Bright Water, bought the island of Soay in the Inner Hebrides and set up a basking shark fishery. Harpoon at a Venture tells of his 'long adventure' and describes in detail the business of fishing for sharks. The fishery failed in 1948, but Maxwell's book remains a vivid portrait of the islands and their fishermen.
