Ring of Bright Water, Paperback Book

Ring of Bright Water Paperback

Part of the Nature Classics Library series



In 1957, after travelling in southern Iraq, Gavin Maxwell returned to the West Highlands of Scotland with an otter cub called Mijbil.

Written within thew sound of the sea, in a remote cottage where they set up home together, this enduring story evokes the unspoilt seascape and wildlife of a place Maxwell called Camusfearna.

Ring of Bright Water was hailed as a masterpiece when it was first published, sold over two million copies worldwide, and was later adapted into a successful film.

Fifty years on it remains one of the most lyrical, moving descriptions of a man's relationship with the natural world.

Our new edition is unabridged and includes all the illustrations from the first edition.
