Land of Maybe: A Faroe Islands Year by Tim Ecott
3 in stock
Following the natural cycle of the year, The Land of Maybe captures the essence of the 18 mysterious Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic. Here, a fast disappearing world is home to a close-knit society where just 50,000 people share Viking roots and a unique language. Buffeted by the elements in a volatile environment, the Faroese still hunt seabirds, herd pilot whales and eat mutton fermented in the salt winds that howl across dark fjords.A passionate naturalist, Ecott immerses himself in this starkly beautiful landscape, revealing a way of life that maintains a deep connection to the past. The Land of Maybe offers a refuge from the freneticism of the modern world, and confronts some of the biggest challenges we face in trying to live in peace with nature.
