SUTHERLAND , DOUGLAS:
Against the Wind : An Orkney Idyll
Heinemann 1966 First VG/VG edgewear 210pp 15 illus 8.5 x 5.5 445g
¶ "Islands have a magic which is all their own and this is a book about an island. It is one of the most northerly of the Orkney group - the beautiful and remote islands which lie off the north coat of Scotland whose traditions and way of life are more closely linked with Norway than with the British Isles." The author was brought up there, left and then returned in 1993. His book is a lovely nostalgic look at his boyhood and is a journey of rediscovery.We have other titles by this author, please contact us direct for further details.
