Katherine Stewart lived, for many years, in an old school house with a large garden in the beautiful wild country near Loch Ness. She followed her Highland classic "A Croft in the Hills" with this celebration of gardening, one of mankind's oldest pleasures. Month by month, we are taken through a year in the life of Katherine's garden. The circle of the seasons is luminously evoked as we are told of the practicalities of gardening, cooking, bee-keeping and wine-making. Katherine's writing is full of warm, personal insights, good humour and a love of living things. The joy of nature extends from her garden into all aspects of life. Writing of her earlier book, Neil Gunn spoke of 'its unusual quality, its brightness and its wisdom.' In this new edition of "A Garden in the Hills", the brightness is undimmed, the wisdom deepened by the passing of the years.
