 About the Book 

When Old Hector takes Young Art on a poaching trip and the two accidentally tumble into the depths of a salmon pool, they wake to find themselves in a bright yet strangely brittle countryside, not unlike their own but with an eerie, nightmarishMoreWhen Old Hector takes Young Art on a poaching trip and the two accidentally tumble into the depths of a salmon pool, they wake to find themselves in a bright yet strangely brittle countryside, not unlike their own but with an eerie, nightmarish quality. The Green Isle of the Great Deep is a haunting, mystical tale of two free spirits in a land somewhere between life and death, where what is ominous becomes finer than a thin wire. The unlikely adventurers, who cherish creativity and free will above all else, find themselves up against the forces of mindlessness and order, and through the struggle discover the true meaning of freedom. As in all of Neil Gunns works, mythology unfolds in real landscapes among living people, all of them drawn from his own childhood on the Moray Firth.
