Memories of a Burra Lass

Regular price £8.99

This nostalgic collection of memories will take you back to a simpler way of life as Barbara Sandison recounts her childhood spent growing up in Burra, Shetland, during the 1940s and 50s.

It was a time before the bridges when Burra folk relied on boats to travel to the mainland for work, health care or secondary school and to bring in supplies. Community was everything and connections between family and neighbours were strong.

This book will jog memories for those who also grew up during this time and give a fascinating insight  into a lost way of life for those who didn't.
