About the Author
Born in Inverness in 1970, Jamie Grant spent many years as a boy living in a small village on the west coast of Scotland. Here he learnt the subtle arts of stone-throwing and jellyfish-stamping long before he heard of the likes of Flora Macdonald or the colourists. His total immersion in all things Scottish came later in life. After going to university in Cardiff, he spent the best part of his twenties in South America, working as an English teacher, journalist and photographer. Whilst nearly drowning in an Amazon river, he had a vision of his distant homeland and decided to make the long pilgrimage back to Scotland. On return, he found everything he had dreamt of and nothing he had expected. Jamie lives in Scotland with his wife Fiona and son Tom.
