Mar Lodge Estate and the Cairngorms. Stalker’s stories and photos collected by Peter, remembering the estate staff 1903-2006.
The Long Bridge by Urszula Muskus. A memoir written by Peter’s grandmother about 16 years as a prisoner in Siberia 1940-56. An uplifting book by a woman with a very positive attitude. Urszula does not dwell on the hardships, but records her friendships with prisoners, guards and bandit molls, the work and daily life, and the constellations in the night skies. She was always ready to help those in more need than herself. Please read some reviews, you maybe surprised.
The environment – something we worry about. Written by our cousin, this poem says it all. Although it is an Australian perspective this poem is just as relevant the world over. The link takes you a reading on The Science Show.
