Sky Dance: Fighting for the wild in the Scottish Highlands

Available

Description

Lord Purdey was shaking with anger. 'Bring back the lynx? Over my dead body!'

The environmental protestors murmured, and Rory stepped forward. 'Your hunting has destroyed our hills and left them treeless wastes, devoid of wildlife. It's time that changed.'

'Listen, you lentil-eating cat lover,' Purdey barked through the megaphone, 'men like me own Scotland. If we want to kill anything that moves and turn the whole damn place into a theme park, we'll do it.'

Someone from the group of protestors hurled a turnip. It struck Purdey and he crumpled to the ground. Just as the archaic class system he represents must eventually fall , Angus thought with a grin.

In his first two bestselling books, The Last Hillwalker and Bothy Tale s , John D. Burns invited readers to join him in the hills and wild places of Scotland. In Sky Dance , he returns to that world to ask fundamental questions about how we relate to this northern landscape - while raising a laugh or two along the way. Anyone who has gazed at the majesty of the Scottish mountains will know this place and want to return to it. Now, as wild land is threatened like never before, it's time we asked ourselves what kind of future we want for the Highlands.
