“The purpose of this book is to tell the reader (of any age) something about one of the most fascinating countries in the world; the hills, lochs and glens, that are known as the Highlands of Scotland; and at the same time sound a warning of the dangers which year after year cost careless visitors their lives. It is of course hard for them to believe that in this thickly populated island there are still places so wide and open that a man can lose himself utterly . . .

“The Highlands are the last stronghold of the native birds, beasts and fishes that once roamed the forests of Britain: the great red deer, the wild-cat, the sable-like pine marten, the golden eagle and other seldom-seen predatory birds, the huge capercailzie which is ~ The giant of the grouse family, the wild goose, the ptarmigan which winter and summer live in the high tops, and a host of smaller birds now rare in the south, such as the crossbill, the redshank and the grey wagtail.--back cover.
