The H is for Hawk for lovers of the outdoors and wildlife. A fascinating memoir of Scotland's first-ever qualified female gamekeeper.

Portia Simpson grew up outdoors, always preferring to climb trees than play indoors. Talented and driven, she became the first female to graduate as a Gamekeeper and Wildlife Manager. In this wonderful memoir, Portia tells the story of how she first broke into a traditionally conservative, male-dominated profession and the skills, training and dedication that helped to set her apart. She gives an intimate account of a life filled with stunning landscapes, heart-wrenching lows and magnificent highs, and shares her expert insight into the world of game keeping.

Offering a sense of wonder at the mystique and natural beauty of the wild, this is a fascinating and unique look at the life of the huntswoman.

`The vividness of Portia Simpson's writing seduces you, evoking her passionate connection with the raw, violent beauty of nature' Libby Purves, Daily Mail
