In this attractively illustrated booklet, David Jones looks at the changing wildlife of Lewis and Harris over the centuries as seen through estate and game records. He charts the rise and fall of particular species, often heavily influenced by the management policies of the estates, and gives a tantalising insight into changing attitudes and the world of sporting estates. By drawing on sources not hitherto widely used, David Jones's research, based on his impressive Western Isles Countrysports Archive, allows a glimpse of a different world, which will be of absorbing interest to those fascinated by both the natural and social history of the islands.
