About this book

The late John Morton Boyd was a pioneer of nature conservation in Scotland, with a career spanning more than forty years. His memoir has many voices: the romantic explorer and artist in exotic places, the gifted scientist, and the ardent lover of nature. A fascinating account by a man who flung himself at life, and his interest in the harmonies of nature.
