Keith Brockie's 'One Man's Island' immediately became one of the bestselling Scottish natural history books of all time when it was released in 1984. The combination of breathtaking wildlife images with notes and background information, captured unforgettably the beauty of the Isle of May, a gem of an island in the Firth of Forth. Since then Brockie has constantly returned to the Isle of May. From April to October 2010 he stayed on the island, working intensively to produce an entirely new set of drawings and paintings. With his eye for colour and characteristic arttention to detail he has produced a huge number of artworks, mixing depictions of the majestic peregrine and white-tailed eagle with sketches of fluffy eider ducklings and kittiwake chicks. Return to One Man's Island will be the publishing event of the year for those who loved Brockie's original Isle of May book, as well as a whole new generation of readers and lovers of wildlife painting.
