    This book combines the poetry of Kenneth Steven with the photography of Alastair Jackson and features images of Skye and Raasay in homage to one of Scotland's leading 20th century poets, Sorley McLean. The Choice explores islands as places to be discovered; places which shy away from recognition, yet are in some way familiar. Kenneth Steven's poetry reflects on the link between people and the land; how identity is shaped by wild places; the passing of many of the old ways of the Hebrides; the enduring beauty of these islands; the hospitality of their people and the depth of their spiritual awareness. Alastair Jackson's photography captures the wilder and remoter parts of Skye and Raasay, often in bad weather, but showing a glimmer of sunshine and hope on the horizon. His wide horizons and stormy sky offer a glimpse into both the turbulent past and the deep spirituality of the Hebrides. This book uniquely captures the spirit of the Hebrides. Kenneth Steven has published 14 volumes of poetry in all, 5 with Saint Andrew Press. He is a frequent speaker at Scottish literary festivals. He has written and presented numerous poetry programmes for BBC Radio. Alastair Jackson grew up on Skye. His work is frequently exhibited at prestigious galleries and arts festivals.
