Ernest Marwick's compilation of Orkney and Shetland tales and traditions is a stand-by book for anyone interested in the Norse culture of our Northern Isles. Norwegian for around four hundred years when they were referred to by their old Norse term of the Nordreyjar, the islands had their own language called Norn, now largely superseded by the Scots dialect. This is an enchanting book that in plain terms describes the enduring customs and folk beliefs that have long made Orkney and Shetland special and unique in the British Isles.

From the Sea Mither and the Stoor Worm to the hogboons and trows of hill and mound, the denizens of the deep and wights of the earth are delightfully described. Agricultural customs are also included as well as the island calendar of events, with a host of tales passed down from generation to generation and extensive notes, this is an invaluable book for all ages - from children requiring a bedtime story to the serious folklorist. Recommended.
