Product description


"'Hewitson's book provides a series of snap-shots into life on this far-flung Orkney isle.'" Scottish Field "'Eight years of articles, essays and diary jottings will provide readers old and new with a remarkable series of snapshots of life on the ocean fringe'." Scots Magazine

About the Author

After a career in news-gathering and extensive travel in Europe, Jim moved with his wife, Morag, and their three children to the island, where, over the years, he has been a lobster fisherman, lightweight labourer, graveyard grasscutter and columnist for journals as diverse as the Washington Post and the Inverness Courier. As well as broadcasting regularly on topics such as Scottish history and island life, he has also written nine full-length works of non-fiction, including two important studies of Scots emigrants overseas.
