Product Description

Details

Fife is a kingdom of the senses, of atmospheres, a place where the ghosts of an immense past flit through the shadows, where the weather changes all in a moment from hazy sunshine to the sudden sear of biting wind. It is a photographer's paradise. Liz Hanson has photographed all of Fife in this beautiful book, from the mining and manufacturing towns of the south-west, to the villages of south Tayside, through the green heart of the Howe, to the familiar beauties of the East Neuk. In more than 200 stunning images she captures the glories of the kingdom. 

Alongside the images, historian Alistair Moffat tells Fife's story, and it glitters with incident, from the Romans and the Kindred Hounds, to the Gaelic-speaking kings in the west at Dunfermline, and the oldest university and the greatest cathedral in the east. Fife is a place like no other - open these pages to find out why.
