14 editions published between 1934 and 2006 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Flaherty's account of life on the Aran Islands, situated off the western coast of Ireland, is a classic of the documentary cinema. Completed in 1934, the film was some two years in the making and shows man's never-ending struggle for existence on these barren rocks, exposed to the fury of the Atlantic. The central characters are a man, his wife and their small son and their efforts to make a living, epitomise the conflict between Man and Nature. Beautifully photographed, the highlights of the film are a lengthy shark hunt and the dramatic ending, when the incredibly high seas threaten to smash the fishermen's small boat against the cliffs
