It would gladden the hearts of bureaucrats the world over if the earth took exactly one hundred days to revolve round the sun. But to the everlasting joy of trees, waters, children, animals and artist, the number of days a year is 365 1/4. And that can never be tampered with. Also the moon performs her marvellous ballet in 28 days.

For many years George Mackay Brown wrote a weekly column in The Orcadian. This book is the second of three compilations from the column published in book form.

These selections offer more of his honest opinions, perceptive descriptions and evocative writing. Managing to be both matter-of-fact and highly individual, they are a breath of fresh air from Orkney.

A publication of George Mackay Brown's earlier articles is also available: Letters From Hamnavoe
