CLIFFS OF FBEEDOM is the story of Skomer and of Reuben Codd, the last man to farm the island. Situated off the West coast of Pembrokeshire, Skomer is famous now as a bird sanctuary but ever since the days of the early Celtic wanderers men have wrested a living from its fertile acres. Part of the island story was the life of Reuben Codd who eventually gave up the unequal struggle against odds. But not before he had left a lasting impression on all those who came in contact with him during those years before the final problems arose attendant upon a wild, carefree island being turned into a patrolled and sign-posted sanctuary. Illustrated with B&W photographs. Illustrated / decorative end papers. 155pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
