THURSO: REMINISCING WITH A "THIRSA LOON:
THURSO: REMINISCING WITH A "THIRSA LOON"
The history of Thurso, the most northerly town on the British mainland, is a long and eclectic one. But history would be a dry and dusty subject if confined to dates and names and bare facts.
What brings it alive is the personal touch – and that is what makes REMINISCING WITH A “THIRSA LOON” such an engaging and enjoyable read, as well as being informative and historically valuable in its own right.
Throughout the pages of this book you will find a remarkable collection of personalities and characters, and learn how they played their part in the rich and constantly developing story of Thurso.
The book is written from the heart and with affection. But it’s not all cosy nostalgia. We learn about filthy streets, poorly-kept and foul-smelling graves, and tragedies brought about by negligence.
This collection of 36 stories will appeal to anyone with links to Thurso, and the wider area of Caithness.
