  • Additional Product Information

    Immediately after the Second World War Gavin Maxwell  purchased the Isle of Soay off  the Isle of Skye with the aim of setting up a basking shark fishery. The project failed due principally to lack of finance and the isle was eventually sold to a business associate. Harpoon at a Venture is his tale of those years.
