Following the success of his debut, Jack P Harland returns with the second book in the Highland Journal series. In My Stride begins with a move to Aberdeen where Jack finds an eccentric new companion. Together, they set off to explore the Cairngorms, an area that was to surprise Jack and become his favourite corner of the Highlands.
The chapters cover a wide range of areas of the north and west of Scotland, each packed with insights into the geology of the mountains and perceptive notes on the hardy wildlife encountered. There are fierce battles with the elements and days of high adventure. Old friends are not neglected and readers who laughed at the colourful exploits of the Jolly Boys in The Making of a Hillwalker will be delighted at the chance to enjoy more of their memorable trips.
And throughout it all, Jack's deep passion for our northern wilderness permeates every page of this treasure of a book.
