Klondykers by Bill Mackie

Book Description

Powerful commercial barons in pursuit of the rich energy resources of the North Sea launched unprecedented demands on the local infrastructure, on land, employment, transport, housing, disrupting the reluctant and the complacent. The Oil Men Onshore continues the saga begun in The Oilmen: The North Sea Tigers and tells the very human story from both sides of the divide: from the invaded - the folk of the Northern Isles, the east and west Highlands, the North-east, Tayside and Fife - and from the invaders, who came from across the Border, from the Continent, Scandinavia and the United States. It is also an intriguing account of how - against a background of ignorance, bad decisions, political warfare, local rivalry and immense national pressures - Scotland achieved, in a remarkably short time, a new industrial revolution. The story is told vividly by means of informed narrative and interviews with those who worked and still work in the industry and those whose lives were irrevocably affected by it and is enhanced by a huge number of photographs.
