Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bible for booktrailers everywhere See the locations in the book here Hebrides booktrail The landscape of the Outer Hebrides has become just as much a character in Peter May’s Lewis trilogy as the characters themselves. All stunningly evoked in fiction, this is a real chance to see them for yourself, if you can’t get to the islands, There’s rocky headlands, small lochs, long and winding roads and a sense of isolation and ravaged land. There is real history here as well as a magical island setting where you just know there are tales of folklore, mysterious deaths and a sea that takes people and sinks ships. Walking in the footsteps of Fin Macleod, Peter takes you around the island showing you it as Fin would do, showing you his view of flora and fauna and explaining how the islands have shaped him and the other people on the island. There is also mention of the many traditions and mysteries on the island as featured in the books such as the the land where the bird hunters track down the gulls each year and where the worst British maritime history took place. You can really see the island as Peter describes it and how Fin lives it and Peter is the perfect guide telling you why and how certain places inspired and lent themselves to the events in each of the three Lewis Trilogy books.
