Sagas Of Salt & Stone by Robin Noble



ISBN: 9781912235025 Category: Tags: ,


The islands of Orkney are distinct perhaps that bit wild. Remote surrounded by an endless ocean and dominated by an infinite sky which brings either brilliant light or days of wind that makes everything taste of salt. This remarkable landscape has the power to bewitch people and Robin Noble has been in its thrall for a lifetime. In Sagas of Salt and Stone he takes us on a personal voyage of adventure and discovery of the archipelago its history nature and people – from its seabird colonies and startling rock formations to its fishermen’s huts and the Ring of Brodgar. Robin reflects on what has changed and is changing in Orkney sharing stories of golden summer days and relentless winter storms of past friendships and family travails. He highlights the best that Orkney has to offer and elucidates its power to inspire and to provide succour for troubled souls. Sagas of Salt and Stone is nothing less than his love letter to Orkney and its people.
