Love of Country by Madeleine Bunting

The Hebridean Islands’ raw beauty and remarkable culture are captured with striking depth in former Guardian columnist Madeleine Bunting’s book Love of Country. Drawing on her experience of travelling the islands garnered across six years, Bunting combines the geography, history and literature of the much-loved islands in a compelling piece that will make you want to witness the “edge of the world” for yourself (Granta Books, hardback £18.99).
