By Sheena Wenham

A detailed study of the social and economic life of the parish and people of Holm.

It is illustrated with episodes and incidents from the lives of a cross-section of the community: Holm lairds and naval men; farmers and crofters; kelp makers and linen workers; servants and cottars.

It is these stories that enable a clear picture of 18th century Orkney life - a time before the days of full-scale agricultural improvement.
