Bright Pebbles
Edited by Mary Blance and Laureen Johnson
Bright Pebbles brings together the words, experiences and insights of fifty writers, in poetry and prose, dialect and English. They reflect Shetland as it is now, and as it was in the most recent past: the land, the sea, the seasons, the people, the music and lightsomeness, the ways of making a living. The book is amply illustrated with artwork and photographs. The accompanying CD features a selection of the best poems, in a rich mixture of contrasting Shetland voices, together with songs and music.
