Description - Midges by Alasdair Roberts

The midge does not like sunlight and thrives in the wet, so the Scottish summertime brings perfect climatic conditions for this ruthless wee beastie. This fascinating anthology of anecdotes and information about the minuscule marauder ranges from the eighteenth century to the present, covering such topics as Bonnie Prince Charlie, Queen Victoria, kilts and camping. Perhaps most importantly, however, it also includes a section on remedies and repellents, so locals and visitors can enjoy the pleasures of Scotland without the pain. And if the new midge-eating machines are as good as claimed, midges may soon be a thing of the past.

Buy Midges by Alasdair Roberts from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
