Product Description:
The Faeroes are a small community on a remote group of islands in the Atlantic containing a successful economy and a notable culture where the arts flourish. The Faeroes, whose growing numbers exceed the populations of Orkney and Shetland combined, have avoided many of the strains and dislocations that beset the rest of us. This text tells the story of the Islands, their history and natural history and their people. The astonishing beauty of the Islands, which rise in most places vertically from the sea, and the Faeroes way of life today, are depicted in the many photographs by Gunnie Moberg and Trondur Patursson's drawings hauntingly evoke the viking past.
