Overview

For some time, this has been a standard book on the wildlife and natural world of the Scottish Highlands, with a special focus on the majestic red deer, renowned the world over as "monarchs of the glen". The book begins in November, and takes us through the year to October, "the month of roaring", rutting time of the red deer. This new edition is enhanced by the author's prize-winning photographs, which provide rare and evocative portraits of the red, row, and Sika deer, as well as golden eagles, foxes, badgers, and wildcats.

As the months pass, we are given fascinating insights into the intricate pattern of life in the wild. MacNally's unrivaled familiarity and understanding of Scottish wildlife is conveyed in the words and pictures of this book, as he describes the beautiful land of the deer, the hardships of winter, the birth of the calves in the spring, and the feverish and spectacular duels between stags which culminate the year. Lea MacNally was, for over twenty years, a naturalist for the National Trust for Scotland and was a Fellow of the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland.
