About Scorched Earth Stories

Finnmark reindeer

My book ‘Scorched Earth Stories’ is about the destruction of the north of Norway and the people who survived being forcibly moved off their land, and who later came back and rebuilt their shattered communities.

It’s set in Finnmark and Troms, regions high up in the Arctic Circle which experience Midnight Sun in summer and long blackouts in winter.. it’s a place of extremes.

So you can’t get an idea of what people went through in the winter of 1944 by writing a book at home. In my view you’ve got to get the stories from the people who lived through these experiences, or grew up hearing those stories.
