Ring of Bright Water: A Trilogy
By Gavin Maxwell
The true story of a man living with his pet otters. That's it.
A beloved classic from 1960, this is a chronicle of Gavin's life and how it was forever changed when he brought an otter home from Iraq and lived with it in remote Scotland. The story of his ups and downs with his playful pet otters Mji, Edal and Teko, enthralled readers all over the world.
Heartwarming, funny and tragic, Ring of Bright Water is especially thought-provoking in this day and age. Revisit it and explore the timeless connection between man and wildlife, while contemplating its power dynamics and the ethics of domesticating a wild animal.
