Ring of Bright Water

Stock Code:


Ring of Bright Water by Gavin Maxwell. 'In this fascinating book Gavin Maxwell tells of the lonely, roadless cottage on the West Highland coast which for ten years has been the background to his foreign travels. He writes movingly about his remote home, about the unspoilt landscape and the wildlife he has encountered there. But the 'hero' of the book is his pet otter, Mijbil. After his dog had died, he brought this otter cub back from the Tigris marshes. As intelligent and affectionate as any dog, it ran free at the cottage, always returning at night to sleep in the author's bed. The part this charming pet played in Gavin Maxwell's life ended abruptly and tragically; Mijbil, trusting and confiding as always, was killed by a road-mender. The book has light to medium general wear with some scribblings by previous owners but overall the book remains a great read.
