Description

This fascinating book explores the peatlands of the Hebrides over the course of the year, using the seasons to show how the story of peat is also the story of Scotland.

Robin A. Crawford takes us on a journey from the first uses of peat during the Bronze Age, through the wildlife and folklore associated with the land during the centuries, to its integral role in the making of whisky. He also looks at the historical, social and cultural importance that peat has played in the lives of many, bringing an emotional resonance to our dark, desolate landscapes.
