Nort Atlantik Drift Summary

Nort Atlantik Drift by Robert Alan Jamieson

North Atlantic Drift - the warm ocean current that runs past Shetland, keeping the climate mellower than equivalent latitudes anywhere else in the world. For centuries Shetland's artistic tradition has been nurtured by the rhythms of the sea and the lyrical cadences of a unique dialect. Set halfway between Scotland and Norway, these North Atlantic isles have produced a distinct and vibrant culture. Robert Alan Jamieson mixes mythology, autobiography and history with photographs in a beautiful book not only for Shetlanders, but everyone who has visited, or dreams of visiting.
