In Search of Willafjord



In this book Maurice Henderson shares his experience and travels on a coast once familiar to many Shetlanders. he discovers some fascinating historical accounts from the whaling days, and brings them to life with stunning photography.

Willafjord -A place in the far north remembered in a fiddle tune - was this inspired by a real or mythical location? Local tradition says the tune was taken back from the ice; dating back to the days of the Arctic whaling.

An account of an Arctic voyage from 1851 holds a first clue; an insight into that era of Shetland fiddlers at the Arctic whaling. Maurice, captivated by these stories from the ice, feels compelled to find out more and head north - "In Search of Willafjord".
