KIRKUS REVIEW

Even with travel to the British Isles out of the picture, your customers will welcome this description of the Scotch Isles, which dot the coast for hundreds of miles. These wild and unspoiled isles weave an undeniable spell over those who've visited them and the reader of Mr. MacDiarmid's book will catch their mood. The author lives on one of the Shetlands and introduces us to far more than Shetland ponies, wool and Fair Isle sweaters. We meet the people at sea, on their crafts, we feel their struggle, their simple faith, their magic maladjustment to life away from the sea and like the author we'd like to preserve them as they were while helping improve their destitute living conditions.
