Gavin Maxwell's "Ring of Bright Water" is one of the most famous books of natural history of the 20th century. Yet the man remains a fascinating and enduring enigma. This is a personal and sympathetic look at an extraordinary man during his last tumultuous years by one of his closest friends and his business manager. The title refers to the physical resemblance between the two men and the book aims to provide an honest portrait of Maxwell through the destruction of Camusfearna to his final acceptance of the inevitability of death.
