The ‘hundred and one tales’ of this volume are a ‘short-cut’ to the principal changes, events and personalities that have over thousands of years formed the Orkney that we know today. This is equally a tribute to the archaeological digs, writings, library archives and museum collections that illuminate the story of Orkney.
Enter if you dare the knotty, tangled imagination of Papay-based pen-pusher Jim Hewitson. In this surprising collection of ‘poems’ you’ll encounter superstars and couthy bars, tall tales and lonely whales and much, much more to amaze and delight. ‘.....a unique voice, a great sense of humour and a humanity that jumps out of the pages.’ (Pam Beasant)
