The Ring of Bright Water (trilogy)
by Gavin Maxwell
‘Engrossing and magnificent’ – The Spectator
‘Gavin Maxwell’s trilogy is essential reading’ – The Sunday Herald
Fifty years ago Gavin Maxwell went to live in an abandoned house on a shingle beach on the west coast of Scotland. A haven for wildlife – he named his home Camusfearna and settled there with the otters Mij, Edal and Teko.
The Ring of Bright Water chronicles Gavin Maxwell’s first ten years with the otters and touched the hearts of readers the world over, brilliantly evoking life with these playful animals in this natural paradise. Two further volumes followed – The Rocks Remain and Raven Seek Thy Brother – bringing the story full circle telling of the difficult last years and the final abandonment of the settlement.
For the first time the entire trilogy is available in a single narrative in this beautifully presented book.
