Siud an t-Eilean, translated as There Goes the Island, is from Donald MacAulay's seminal poem on the magnetic forces emanating from the single landmass of Lewis and Harris. These poems by established and lesser-known writers, written in a wide range of styles, amount to valuable insights into life in a particular place. The themes will also stir comparisons with life in any community with a strong sense of identity.

Gaelic poems have accompanying translations, many of which appear here for the first time.

This book also reproduces 24 black and white photographs, all studies of life on the Long Island.
