Quick Overview

First published in 1976, this classic account of the life and achievements of a man whose work and beliefs have attained an almost mythic status, is written by one of his closest friends - also his business manager - and is a grittily honest portrait of Gavin Maxwell, the author of Ring of Bright Water.

Details

Gavin Maxwell's "Ring of Bright Water" is one of the most famous books of natural history of the 20th century. Yet the man remains a fascinating and enduring enigma. This is a personal and sympathetic look at an extraordinary man during his last tumultuous years by one of his closest friends and his business manager. The title refers to the physical resemblance between the two men and the book aims to provide an honest portrait of Maxwell through the destruction of Camusfearna to his final acceptance of the inevitability of death.
