A true people's digest to be read and enjoyed by Orcadians, and lovers of the Orkney Islands, wherever they may be around the world.
(Large format hardback)
Compiled by Howard Hazell
The best-selling first volume of The Orcadian Book of the 20th Century was a chronicle of those one hundred years, featuring some of the major news stories that Orkney gave to the world during war and peace.
This second volume is a collection of stories about people who featured both in Orkney and around the world in what was regarded as the people¹s century.
It focuses on the momentous, the quirky and the everyday achievements of ordinary folk. It is a collection of heroes and villains, saints and sinners, the magnificent and the mundane.
It is a true people's digest to be read and enjoyed by Orcadians, and lovers of the Orkney Islands, wherever they may be around the world.
