This book is a translation of Utsira, Gard og slekt, (Utsira, Farm and family), by Jostein Austrheim, published in Norway in 1995. It is a record of settlement on Utsira, the outermost island off the west coast of Norway. It is also a genealogy of the folk who carved out a living there through the ages. It begins with a brief overview of the earliest evidence of settlement on the island, going back to 3000 BC through the Great Migration. The earliest written records date back to 1521. From that date, the author gives a detailed account of the farmers, fishermen and their families, interspersed with many fascinating old photos, maps and charts, entertaining local tales, and newspaper clippings that help to bring alive the past on this exotic and remote island in the North Sea.
