An Orkney Tapestry by George Mackay Brown
An Orkney Tapestry by George Mackay Brown
3 of 4 people found the following review helpful
There's surely no better guide to any area, perhaps especially a small group of islands, than a poet who has lived there nearly all his life, and knows the people and their history like his own. I plan to make my first visit to Orkney next month, to listen to music at the festival George Mackay Brown helped to start, and to use this book as a main handbook to the place. Out of print, apparently. Time it was republished.
