Orkney folk tales by Tom Muir( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tom Muir takes you on a magical journey through the mysterious Orkney Islands, where the past and the present meet. Using the ancient stories that were told by the firesides of the Picts and Vikings, we hear how the islands were created from the teeth of a monster; how a giant created lochs and hills in his greed for fertile land; and how the waves are controlled by the hand of a goddess. Here ancient standing stones walk and burial mounds are the home of the trows. Invisible islands are encountered, home to fin folk and mermaids, while seals are not always what they seem to be.

Barbara Rae : the Northwest Passage by Barbara Rae( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 2015 Barbara Rae travelled to Greenland on the trail of her namesake and fellow Scot, the surgeon and explorer Dr John Rae (1813-1893). Captivated by the 'wild sort of life', he travelled to the Arctic in 1846, learning local languages and survival techniques. His enlightened co-operation and collaboration with the Inuit - almost unheard of at the time - allowed him to discover the fate of Sir John Franklin's lost 1845 expedition, and to confirm the existence of the Northwest Passage, the maritime link between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.00This book is the artistic result of Barbara Rae's extraordinary journey. Through the artist's deft handling of colour and line the frozen landscape of the Arctic jumps into life from the page. This special publication takes the reader on a journey of discovery from Scotland to the Arctic, and back again. Her vivid images are combined with insightful texts from authors including the Inuit leader and advocate Tagak Curley, the architect Ian Ritchie and the celebrated playwright Duncan Macmillan, as well as contributions from the artist herself.00Exhibition: Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh, UK (04.08.-09.09.2018) / Pier Arts Centre, Stromness, Orkney, UK / Canada House, London, UK (Fall 2008)
