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. Blue boards with gilt spine title. Dust jacket worn on edges. No inscriptions. Edges stained. Some foxing
