1914 Peace and War
Gordon Johnston
This year sees the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. This new book, compiled by Gordon Johnston, catches a flavour of what people in Shetland – and Shetlanders elsewhere in Britain and overseas – were reading in ‘da paper’ in 1914. Two hundred and seventy two pages of content from the newspaper of the year.

These extracts paint a picture of the social lives of the inhabitants of the county and the external events that, perhaps more than ever before, began to play a large part in their lives.

A Kist of Emigrants
J. Laughton Johnston
Shetland – the most northerly islands in the British Isles – has finite resources and when, in the 19th century, its population eventually exceeded the capacity of the land and sea to support them, many individuals and whole families had to leave.

Between 1860 and 1880, at least 8,000 Shetlanders, more than a quarter of the population, emigrated to destinations all over the world. Very many of those Shetland emigrants went on to do and achieve remarkable things.

This large format book contains over 100 unique stories of 1,000 Shetland emigrants, it is illustrated with many photos, poems and letters.
