of North and West Sutherland.
A very enjoyable book about North-west Sutherland in days gone
by - the photographs (mainly taken from archive postcards) are
super and the accompanying text is a well-written blend of history
and anecdotes. A book which current and former Sutherland folk
will relish but also great for visitors to the area, or, in
fact, anyone interested in finding out a bit more about this
often overlooked but supremely beautiful and history rich part
of the northern Highlands.

An Illustrated Architectural... Guide.This guide traces
the architectural history and development of Caithness. It illustrates
the architecture in Caithness through examination of the wide
range of buildings associated with the coast and the country,
castle and church, and also the principal contrasting towns
of Wick and Thurso. The book also highlights the previous prevalence
of the fishing industry along the coast, outlining many structures
now either under-used or devoted to new roles. Covering buildings
old, new and occasionally demolished and including many historical
anecdotes about the personalities connected with the area, this
guide should be of general interest to tourists and locals,
as well as those with a specific interest in architecture.
A Caithness Childhood.
This autobiographical account of childhood in the '50s and '60s
centres around Latheronwheel, a small village in Caithness.
Brimful of anecdote, it is neither slushily sentimental nor
dreamily nostalgic, but an evocation of country life and a child's
relationship both with adults and nature. Green also covers
subjects like education, religion, animals, snow, sea, sunshine,
family, monsters, bitter cold, biting sea breezes, indecision
and black despair. It is a child's view of the world - a child
who despises adult advice, a child who is sensitive to nature,
a child who is still green.

varied - from secluded beaches for the family, dramatic waterfall
walks or small hills for an afternoon, to more serious days
out on larger hills. It is written with great enthusiasm and
feeling, a refreshing change from the usual dry instructions
in guide books.
