The Poems: A Boorich o Fowk

A Boorich o Fowk (Severin Books, 2003) reflects with humour and sensitivity the relationships local people have with the land, the sea, and the towns of North East Scotland.

Like the earlier collection, The Heilanman's Sporran, Charles Hynes provided the wonderful cover illustration and proceeds from the sale of the book supported Mental Health Aberdeen. Sheena is an Honorary Member of Mental Health Aberdeen's Advisory Committee.

The opening section, Sea Fowk, is a sequence of poems inspired by John Bellany's exhibition, 'Images of the North Sea'.

Copies are available from Mental Health Aberdeen, or contact Severin Books.
