Blurb/Shorttext:
Seen from the sea the islands look like green pyramidal peaks of huge underwater mountains. The rest of the land is hidden under the surface. The islands, says William Heinesen, are "like a grain of sand on a dance floor", but a closer look at the grain will unveil a whole universe of small villages and valleys, mountains and fjords. What is hiding in the Faroe Islands? In this book Dr. Firouz Gaini will guide us to contemporary Faroese society with focus on the everyday life and cultural identities of children and young people. The book introduces the reader to a North Atlantic island community that is more diverse and complex in its cultural and social fabric than most people know.
