'George Mackay Brown's 'Winter Tales' is an enchanting, tender and robust collection of stories steeped in the ancient rhythms and customs of rural life.' --Vogue
'The burnished beauty of his natural descriptions is that of a spellbinding spinner of tales, making his a worthy addition to the trove he would preserve.' --Scotland on Sunday
'In this collection the author is at his celebratory and affirmative best. Everything he writes about is rooted in the harsh Orkney landscape, yet is often heart-achingly tender and compassionate.' --Yorkshire Post --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
These stories celebrate winter and its festivals, in a northern setting. They encompass Lieutenant William Bligh at the port of Hamnavoe, an Edinburgh man rediscovering his roots in Shetland, Baltic-men shipwrecked on the Orkney coast, and Norse warriors setting out for the Holy Land.See all Product Description
