Following the natural cycle of the year, The Land of Maybe captures the essence of the 18 mysterious Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic. Here, a fast disappearing world is home to a close-knit society where just 50,000 people share Viking roots and a unique language.
Buffeted by the elements in a volatile environment, the Faroese still hunt seabirds, herd pilot whales and eat mutton fermented in the salt winds that howl across dark fjords.
A passionate naturalist, Ecott immerses himself in this starkly beautiful landscape, revealing a way of life that maintains a deep connection to the past. The Land of Maybe offers a refuge from the freneticism of the modern world, and confronts some of the biggest challenges we face in trying to live in peace with nature.
