    • Written by Portia Simpson
    • The inspiring tale of Scotland's first female gamekeeper
    • A captivating memoir
    Portia Simpson was Scotland's first ever qualified female gamekeeper and, in this memoir – set against the glorious backdrop of the Scottish Highlands – she talks about the highs and lows she has experienced during her career.

    A lover of the great outdoors from a very early age, Portia talks about her childhood and how she managed to break into what is traditionally a conservative and male-dominated profession. She explains how she honed her skills, where she trained and the dedication that set her apart from the crowd – and even inspired a character in the BBC's Monarch of the Glen.

    This is a captivating read that provides a fascinating and unique look at the life of a huntswoman while also offering a sense of wonder at nature's beauty.
