This is Volume 2 of a natural history of the Outer Hebrides - Lewis, Harris, the Uists and Benbecula, and Barra, with their outliers. The series consists of three self-contained volumes and combines scientific breadth with precise local detail, making it equally useful in the field to serious students and casual observers. This second volume deals with terrestrial habitats, plants, birds and animals, including the machair, the unique floriferous grassland of the Atlantic seaboard of the islands.

Stewart Angus, a native Hebridean, was for five years area manager for the Outer Hebrides for Scottish Natural Heritage, the government body charged with care of the natural environment in Scotland. He is now specialist adviser on coastal ecology in Scottish Natural Heritage. His interest in the human history of the islands enables him to contextualize natural history in an area where people, land, sea, and wildlife have always been closely entwined. He is also the author of The Outer Hebrides I: The Shaping of the Islands.Review:
