Upon moving to Ardnamurchan some 15 years ago, Les and Chris Humphreys did not realise they would be sharing their home with some of Brtiain's most elusive and misunderstood mustelids. Setting up a series of sensor-operated cameras, they were able to study them at close range. Naturalist and photographer Polly Pullar has known the Humphreys and their pine martens for many years. In this book she tells the remarkable story of the couple and their animal friends, interpolating it with natural history, anecdote and her own experiences with wildlife in the area. The result is a fascinating glimpse into the life of a much misunderstood animal and a passionate portrait of one of Scotland's richest habitats - the oakwoods of Scotland's Atlantic seaboard.
