STONE AGE FARMERS BESIDE THE SEA now at StarWalk KidsMedia

My book Stone Age Farmers Beside the Sea: Scotland's Prehistoric Village of Skara Brae has recently been republished as an e-book at StarWalk Kids Media. and as an Amazon Kindle book.  It has been redesigned and has a new cover, which depicts the Ring of Brodgar, a circle of standing stones and ancient henge monument. The hardcover version is out of print so I am pleased to have this book available again.
Skara Brae is one of Europe's oldest known prehistoric settlements.  For about 600 years, from 3100 B.C. to 2500 B.C. people farmed, herded, hunted, and fished there, raising families in houses built of stone and supported by midden--a mixture of trash, soil, and plant matter.  A violent storm uncovered Skara Brae in 1850.
In 1992 I visited Skara Brae with my husband Art, whose photographs illustrate the book.
