9781840170023: In My Small Corner: Memoirs of an Orkney Childhood

When Margaret Aitken was a child, more than seventy years ago, her 'small corner' was Orkney - 'that little archipelago usually shown in a box in the north-east corner on maps of Great Britain'.
In this book she remembers island life - idyllic memories of growing up in a close-knit community, of walking with the poet and naturalist Robert Rendall, of the pervasive doctrine of the Brethren, of holidays to the neighbouring islands of Eday, Rousay and Westray - and vividly recalls the landscape, wildlife and people of a time long past.
