Let's Talk - - BOOKS -

Con­tin­u­ing a theme, here is a mem­oir of the first fe­male qual­i­fied game­keeper in Scot­land. The Isle of Rum has been fea­tured on Spring/Au­tum­n­watch on the BBC and is fa­mous for the deer and wildlife that live in and around it. As the au­thor says ”the isle is a haunt­ingly beau­ti­ful place” and she was priv­i­leged to work there. Liv­ing and work­ing in a man’s world in a re­mote lo­ca­tion, study­ing the life and death strug­gle that is na­ture in the raw. A vivid in­sight into the world of gamekeeping and the highs and lows that such a job can bring.
