The author write "Orkney is such a green world in itself. Walk a mile or two and you will see, mixed up with the modern houses of concrete and wood, the 'old farmhouse sunk in time'; hall and manse from which laird and minister ruled in the eighteenth century; smuggler's cave, witch's novel...homesteads of Viking...immense burial chambers where the Norse Jerusalem farers broke in and covered the walls with runes". Against this background, the characters of the stories - the fisherman, crofters, farmers and wild tinkers - live out their hard and often bitter lives. Other stories, in their mixture of Norse and Scottish legend and history, recreate the witch trails, the priest hunts, and the Viking raids of the early days
