  • Seton Gordon's Scotland

    Hamish M. Brown

    Product Code: BKAEA
    Paperback
    Seton Gordon was only a boy when he began exploring the Cairngorms, fascinated by its wildlife and seeking to photograph all he saw - he later became a pioneer naturalist, photographer and folklorist. He wrote about the land that is Scotland, her flora and fauna, her people, her spirits, her often violent past. He took the earliest pictures of golden eagles at their eyries and throughout the first half of the 20th century came to know Scotland's remotest corners, amassing a unique photographic record, recording the changing social life of the islands, collecting a mass of folklore and historical stories, lecturing and writing both for regular publications and in 27 books. Like John Muir, he was a wanderer and a guide. We walk with him through pinewoods, to eyries, to the corries of the Cairngorms, we follow him trying to recreate the greenshank's song on his bagpipe chanter; and see him holding a snowball windward of a nesting dotterel to cool its panting.Welcomed in croft or palace, a keen piper, inevitably dressed in kilt and bunnet, Seton Gordon was one of the age's great characters. This selection from his writings gives a fascinating insight of the man and his great versatility. The author, himself a Scottish outdoors enthusiast and well-known author, has been a lifelong admirer of Seton Gordon and his books and has created a book to treasure.

  • The High Atlas

    Product Code: BDSHT
    Paperback
    This is an inspirational book packed with anecdotes and insights and describing the best treks and climbs in the High Atlas mountains of Morocco, in North Africa, illustrated with dazzling photographs of the mountains and the mountain people, the Berbers. The range has endless tops of over 3000m and some over 4000m, including Jbel Toubkal, Ouanoukrim and Ighil Mgoun (Oumsoud), but travelling through the valleys and experiencing the welcoming Berber people and their culture, is also key to appreciating the High Atlas. The passion of author Hamish Brown's 50-year love affair with the High Atlas fills every page of this unique guide, which describes 48 routes across the range, from north east to south west, from the Eastern High Atlas, through the Mgoun Ranges, the Toubkal Massif and the Tichka Plateau to the Western Atlas. Practical information for first-time visitors to the region is also provided, including how to plan your trip, getting there and getting around, selecting local guides, dealing with bureaucracy, health and safety concerns, what to take and how to get hold of the best maps and guidebooks.
