"The Faroe islands, with their beautiful scenery and their cultural vitality, are home to one of the smallest nations in Europe. An updated description in English of this archipelago should be of great interest in the general reader." - Hanus Kamban.

For most people, the Faroe Islands is just a name heard on the shipping forecast. This book reveals the uniqueness and variety of the islands' landscape, their long and rich history, and the vibrancy of Faroese cultural life, which is currently undergoing something of a Renaissance. The author, Liv Schei, is an expert on the history and culture of the lands settled by Norway in the Viking period. Her detailed and symphatetic account of the Faroe Islands is complemented by Gunnie Moberg's striking photographs and Tróndur Patursson's haunting drawings.

"Without doubt the best introduction to the Faroe Islands." Ian Grimble
