Product description

Synopsis

The hilarious exploits of Para Handy and his crew - beloved by readers since Neil Munro first set them loose on an unsuspecting public all those years ago - are now part of Scotland's genetic make-up. But despite the tales of the Master Mariner, Dougie the Mate, Macphail the Engineer, Sunny Jim and The Tar being in print for almost a century, never before have they received such remarkable treatment. This new edition brings a classic of Scottish literature together with one of the country's most respected artists. Undoubtedly his most captivating book to date, here Hamish Haswell-Smith's breathtaking water-colours create the evocative atmosphere of the West Coast of Scotland as it was in the time of Para Handy but without destroying each reader's unique mental image of Munro's unforgettable characters. Perfect for Para Handy fans everywhere, as well as all those entranced by the work of Hamish Haswell-Smith.

About the Author

HAMISH HASWELL-SMITH'S sketches and paintings have been widely exhibited in British and Continental galleries, as well as illustrating his books, The Scottish Islands and An Island Odyssey. He is an architect by profession (now retired from his own practice) and a keen yachtsman who has sailed extensively in those beautiful West Scotland waters known to Para Handy and the Vital Spark.
