In this, George Mackay Browns first collection of short stories, the themes he would develop over his career are set out an obsession with his home Orkney, its dark and violent Viking past, the cycle of the seasons, and the struggle of its inhabitants. The characters of these stories the fishermen, the crofters, the farmers and the wild tinkers are all struggling to live their lives and find their identities in a harsh habitat and a cruel age. The stories in this collection share the same melancholy tone and sense of the ceaseless renewal made possible by the natural cycle.
