Meeting a vast cast of characters, Thomson ranges from personal anecdotes of impromptu ceilidhs, to more political and scientific issues, looking at agricultural politics and ecological debates. North Scotland s brutal Viking origins and the mysterious Pagan practices of its past are explored, yet The Endless Tide s reach extends far beyond this country, touching on world events since pre-Biblical times. Varied and compelling, with language bordering on the poetic, space and freedom pour from the pages. Mixing his own personal story with Scotland s historical past, this book is a melting-pot of ideas, snapshots and autobiographical accounts, which conjure up the vital past and continuing force of the elusive Highland spirit. A sweeping work which works on a micro- and macro- level, examining the continual cycle of humanity, and Scotland s place in the process.
