Cruise of the Betsey: Rambles With a Geologist

Description:

A facsimile of Hugh Miller’s notes recording his rambles around Scotland in the mid 1840s was published by NMS Publishing in 2003 – the first edition for over a century and long out of print itself. The reprint here has new photographs, minor amendments, a new cover and ISBN. This latest reprint reflects the ongoing revival of interest in the ‘David Attenborough of his day’. Hugh Miller (born in poverty in Cromarty, Ross-shire; 1802-1856) was a self-taught stonemason, writer and geologist. In his lifetime his name was known not just in Scotland but across the English-speaking world. His luminous and reader-friendly writings on his fossil studies earned him the title of ‘the supreme poet of geology’. This account shows the full range of his interests – the lyrical descriptions of the scenery show a deep affection for the Scottish landscape, while his role as a serious journalist is highlighted in his discussions on many crucial issues.
