The home islands
This is the writing by Guernsey people about the island of their birth. The single minded thought is to emphasise what is unique about Guernsey.
So material can be gleaned from folklore, as collected by Maris De Garis, to cartoons by Guppy, to stewed ormer recipes, to excerpts from Ebenezer Le Page, to contemporary Guernsey poets writing about their home island.
George Metivier (1797-1881), philologist and Guernsey's "national" poet. To the Crapauds!
