Format: Hardcover
Maxwell's wonderfully meandering prose continues to outline the evolution of Camusfearna from the cocnlusion of the halcyon days of Ring Of Bright Water. The curse of the rowan tree and the powerful magic that invoked in Maxwell's life and those of his acquaintances. The epilogue is haunting and provides a sad precursor of later events, Teko was also to meet and unfortunate end and the author himself barely survived a year beyond the epilogue. Edal's tribute serves as a fitting message to those of us who ascribe to a paradise that never really exists.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Peter M Bednar on September 2, 1999
Format: Hardcover
God Bless Gavin Maxwell's soul. Always with the best of intentions, this book, continuing after his 'Ring of Brightwater' and 'Rocks Remain' chronicles Maxwell's increasingly depressing, tumultious life. The dream that Camusfearna was, grows tarnished, his otters resentful of any human contact, Mediterranean enemies from the past, come to haunt him, and a series of physically disabling accidents strike him.
On the good side, Maxwell's definite good knack for writing help pull the reader into the book. His visuals about the life on rugged but beautiful Scottish Isles, are absolutely appealing, making you want to be there, more than anything.
Tom Brokaw wrote about the American experience in his acclaimed 'The Greatest Generation' Gavin Maxwell is no doubt is a giant of the 'Greatest' British Generation. Those young boys who grew to responsibility, and manhood in the days of WWII, and the fading light of the British empire. You will be amazed at what these people went through, and what we would consider high adventure, they consider quite routine.
Anyway, read the book.

Format: Hardcover
This book is the third book of a series Maxwell wrote. The first, and by far the most well known, is Ring of Bright Water. This book continues the amazing account of a man's life in Scotland shared with otters. Maxwell's writing is engrossing. His descriptions and knowledge of the natural world create the idyll in its entirety in the reader's mind. As in the first, there are portions that are downright heart wrenching. This book does seem to dwell more on Maxwell's outside projects and troubles than the otters. He, himself, is a fascinating individual. He recounts episodes of health and financial problems that removes the cloud of fantasy surrounding his days at Camusfearna. Inserted in a chapter is an actual proposal written by him in an effort of win support of starting an Eider duck colony. This is a bit dry and doesn't lend much to the book. In researching these birds, however, he makes a trip to Iceland. The story of his trip is great. Even better are tales of poltergeists in his cottage. One does learn more of his life--writing for hours, smoking eighty cigarettes each day--and that is fine. As with the first book there are many terrific photographs of otters and deerhounds and some fine drawings, though the drawings in the first book are so spectacular that anything else pales in comparison. I am amazed at his life, impressed by his sincere love and concern of the creatures around him. While not of the same magical quality of the first book, this is a fine work in its own right.

Not an easy book to read as it deals with when Gavin Maxwell was attempting to leave his home on the West Coast of Scotland and get rid of his beloved otters. His health had also begun to decline. Kind of a sad book, but Maxwell is really in tune with the natural world and the environment.
