THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible.
The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes.

Geoffrey Grigson was a poet whose long working life branched out into travel writing and natural history. The clearest instance of this astringency comes in the entry on dolmens which, as Grigson's daughter Sophie explains in her foreword, were something of a bête noire with her father. Born in Cornwall in 1905, he had a scrambling country childhood that furnished him with a fingertip knowledge of the local terrain. From the early 17th century, the idea had grown that these giant stone table structures - of which Stonehenge is the supreme example - were grand altars on which druids had thrillingly made human sacrifices.
