    The Outer Hebrides of Scotland epitomize the evocative beauty and remoteness of island life. The most dramatic of all the Hebrides is Harris, a tiny island formed from the oldest rocks on earth, a breathtaking landscape of soaring mountains, wild lunarlike moors, and vast Caribbean-hued beaches. This is where local crofters weave the legendary Harris Tweed—a hardy cloth reflecting the strength, durability, and integrity of the life there. 
    In Seasons on Harris, David Yeadon, "one of our best travel writers" (The Bloomsbury Review), captures, through elegant words and line drawings, life on Harris—the people, their folkways and humor, and their centuries-old Norse and Celtic traditions of crofting and fishing. Here Gaelic is still spoken in its purest form, music and poetry ceilidh evenings flourish in the local pubs, and Sabbath Sundays are observed with Calvinistic strictness. Yeadon's book makes us care deeply about these proud islanders, their folklore, their history, their challenges, and the imperiled future of their traditional island life and beloved tweed.

    On our precious globe, oceans spill their majestic waters across 70% of the Earth’s surface.  Over the continents, land untainted by the presence of man is becoming ever more elusive and scarce. 
    One area that almost retains its pristine, unspoiled look is Patagonia in South America. 
    This sparsely populated region is located at the southern end of South America and displays itself across the vast lands of Argentina and Chile. As a whole it comprises of the southern section of the Andes mountains as well as the deserts, pampas and grasslands east of this. Patagonia has two coasts: to the west it faces the Pacific Ocean and to the east the Atlantic Ocean. 
    The Colorado and Barrancas rivers, which run from the Andes to the Atlantic, are commonly considered the northern limit of Argentine Patagonia. For Chilean Patagonia it is at Reloncaví Estuary.  The archipelago of Tierra del Fuego marks its abrupt southern frontier and the famed end of the world. 
    The name Patagonia comes from the word patagón, which was used by the Spanish explorer Magellan in 1520 to describe the native people that his expedition thought to be giants. He called them Patagons and, we think now, they were from the Tehuelche people, who tended to be taller than Europeans of the time. 
    Patagonia encompasses some one million square kilometers and is home to a rich and diverse landscape of plants, fauna and wildlife.  It is a spectacular wilderness full of life and full of history. 
    Early explorers and travellers faced a sometimes difficult and uncomfortable journey to reach there.  The words and pictures they brought back bear testament to a remarkable land and remarkable people. 
    These are their stories.
