Maxwell’s wonderfully meandering prose continues to outline the evolution of Camusfearna from the conclusion 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.
Gavin Maxwell was a Scottish naturalist and author, best known for his work with otters. He was born in Scotland in 1914 to Lieutenant-Colonel Aymer Maxwell and Lady Mary Percy, whose father was the seventh Duke of Northumberland. He was raised in the small village of Elrig, near Port William, which he later described in his autobiography The House of Elrig (1965).
