First published in 1890, "The Confessions of a Poacher" is an interesting collection of essays and anecdotes based on the author's personal and extensive experience poaching. Profusely illustrated and highly-readable, this book primarily offers its reader tips and advice on how to be a successful poacher, but also provides a unique insight into England in the late nineteenth century. "The Confessions of a Poacher" will appeal to those with an interest in hunting and poaching, and it is not to be missed by collectors of vintage literature of this ilk. Contents include: "The Embryo Poacher", "Under the Night", "Graduating in Woodcraft", "Partridge Poaching", "Hare Poaching", "Pheasant Poaching", "Salmon and Trout Poaching", "Grouse Poaching", "Rabbit Poaching", "Tricks", and "Personal Encounters". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition for the enjoyment of modern readers.

Jeremy Paxman has created the perfect literary catch for fellow angling enthusiasts in this rich and varied anthology. Ten thoroughly entertaining themed chapters include 'Ones That Got Away', 'Ones That Didn’t Get Away' and 'Fish That Bit Back'. Each is introduced by Paxman’s own sharp, humorous observations and features both contemporary and historical writing about fishing in prose and verse, covering everything from tench tickling to piranha attacks. Some pieces are well known favourites, others are obscure, every one is a delight. 'A superb compilation because it roams from carp to cod, trout to tarpon and does not regurgitate the same old clippings. Paxman has clearly read widely and wisely in putting this together ... probably the definitive anthology of angling writing.' Keith Elliott, Independent on Sunday.

The islands of the Outer Hebrides are home to some of the most remote and spectacular scenery in the world. They host an astonishing range of mysterious structures - stone circles, beehive dwellings, holy wells and 'temples' from the Celtic era. Over a twelve-day pilgrimage, often in appalling conditions, Alastair McIntosh returns to the islands of his childhood and explores the meaning of these places. Traversing moors and mountains, struggling through torrential rivers, he walks from the most southerly tip of Harris to the northerly Butt of Lewis. The book is a walk through space and time, across a physical landscape and into a spiritual one. As he battled with his own ability to endure some of the toughest terrain in Britain, he met with the healing power of the land and its communities. This is a moving book, a powerful reflection not simply of this extraordinary place and its people met along the way, but of imaginative hope for humankind.
