Paul Strand and Tir a'Mhurain: new edition of the book

This blog, illustrating my quest to find and document the landscape locations used by the American photographer Paul Strand, was inspired by my copy of the first edition of the book "Tir a'Mhurain" he published with Basil Davidson based on a 3-month visit to Benbecula and South Uist in 1954.

A new third edition of the book has recently been published and is now intermittently available from Amazon:
