Sinopsis:

Mairi Hedderwick took a six-week voyage in "The Captain", down the Caledonian Canal, and out to sea in the small, antiquated fishing boat. The voyage was her way of saying farewell to her island home by sailing the waters between island and mainland and exploring the fingers of fjords that indent the west coast of Scotland. Through her words and illustrations, the reader is taken on a journey through some of the most beautiful scenery in Britain: Loch Linnhe, the Lyne of Lorne, Loch Etive, to name a few. The book seeks to capture the true spirit of adventure - not only the dangers and difficulties, but also the moments of self-torment and doubt.

About the Author:

Mairi Hedderwick was born in Gourock, Scotland. At seventeen she took a job as a mother's help on the Isle of Coll in the Hebrides, beginning a life-long love affair with islands and their small communities. Her children were brought up there and now some of her grandchildren. Mairi's island world is delightfully reflected in the imaginary island of Struay where her perennially popular Katie Morag stories are set. As well as creating children's books Mairi writes and illustrates travel books for adults, including Highland Journey and Eye on the Hebrides (Birlinn 2009). She also illustrated the acclaimed Janet Reachfar books, which are published by Birlinn. She continues to live on Coll.
