Kolbein Falkeid describes the people of this distinctive landscape, where the edges of Rogaland and Hordaland run toward the sea, and where the ancient tribes of the Ryge and the Hord have lived side by side for ages. The book explodes with Falkeids literary talent and with this knowledge of local history. He relates his character studies with poetic freedom and with personal, vibrant style. The photographers Nils J. Tollefsen and Ole Jakob Vorraa support the authors words. The photographs communicate experiences, moods, and a love for the Haugaland and its people.
