Hebrides Summary


Hebrides by Peter May

THE PERFECT COMPANION TO PETER MAY'S LEWIS TRILOGY, AND A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY THROUGH THE HEBRIDEAN ISLANDS.

The landscape of the Outer Hebrides, with its stark cliffs, ghostly mists and lonely beaches, has become a definitive character of Peter May's Lewis trilogy. In Hebrides, readers will accompany him on an odyssey in prose and images, through a history of the Vikings' 'Long Island' and his own deep personal connection with the islands that influenced his bestselling work.

Travelling as if alongside his protagonist Fin Macleod, he describes the island life - as bewitching as it is treacherous - his encounter with the bird-hunters of Sula Sgeir, the savage seas of Ness and the churches of Eriskay. With extracts from the trilogy and specially commissioned photographs, this book places his writing and characters within the land that gave them form.

Couldn't get enough of the Lewis trilogy and its extraordinary setting? Check out Peter May's latest bestseller, Coffin Road, in which the million-selling master of crime brings murder back to the Outer Hebrides.
