Summary:
This is an account of what scientists and naturalists who visited the island between 1697 and 1938 experienced, not only the people's way of life but also the wildlife around them, and the ways in which it was important to the islanders' survival. Much of the information was researched from little-known private diaries, files, reports and scientific journals.
