A novel set in a Highland shooting lodge, where the focus is a hunt in a remote deer forest; but this is no ordinary thriller. A shooting lodge party of wealthy English people, a team of Highland stalkers, a legendary stag to be hunted and a background of glen and corrie, shrouded from time to time by impenetrable mist. A marvellous blend of ever-changing landscape - be it light and shadow, swift transitiions from light to half light, mist, rain, tones and flowing lines - contribute to the dramatic essence of the novel. Culture and personality clashes and mystery, which portent much deeper clashes between spiritual and material values, provide a vastly enjoyable read.
About the Author
Neil Gunn was one of Scotland's most distinguished twentieth-century writers. His writing spanned thirty years, ending in the mid-1950s. These two novels show different facets of Gunn's novels in that the first, Second Sight sees the protagonists in typical Highland Scotland, while Wild Geese Overhead is set in Glasgow, a less familiar but no less powerful backdrop for Gunn's fluid and inspiring writing.
