Island Child: My Life on Skokholm with R. M. Lockley


In stock


When reading through the diaries of her father, the well-known naturalist and writer R. M. Lockley, Ann Lockley was struck by the differences between what he had written in his books and what she remembered. So here, she gives her side of things.

When visitors to Skokholm observed this small child on the island, some considered she was deprived, but Ann herself sees her life there as rich and happy, with her ponies and goats and the wildlife of the island.

An enjoyable story about an unusual childhood.
