Published by Country Life Ltd, London, 1950, 1st UK Edition, slight bumping to corners, No D/w, Nr.Fine.    Includes several chapters on the history of the Hebrides, chapters on individual islands (with seven chapters on Skye) and chapters on the people, religion, language and dress and fishing, crofting and other pursuits.  Though prolific author Gordon accompanied the Oxford University Expedition to Spitsbergen in 1921, the birds of the Scottish mountains and glens were always his real passion and, from his home in Aviemore (and later the Isle of Skye), he made regular forays into the hills.
