Description - People of the Wild Cat Country by Sandra Macpherson

In "A Strange and Wild Place", Sandra MacPherson recorded her extraordinary life as a Highland chieftain's wife on Glentruim estate, weaving her own story with tales of infamous Macphersons of old. In her latest book, she broadens her horizons to include the whole of Badenoch and Strathspey, introducing a multitude of old and new tales from the area, as well as providing more personal recollections of her experiences there. In addition to stories featuring members of her own MacPherson clan, she also includes tales of love, battle, adventure, intrigue, danger and dark secrets, as well as chilling accounts of witchcraft, the supernatural and the unexplained. Together, these stories paint a vivid picture of this very special corner of the Highlands - not only of its richly varied landscape made up of farmland, forest and stark, imposing mountains, but also of the people who have lived and loved there through the centuries, and of the changes over time that have inevitably affected and continue to mould their lives.

Author Biography - Sandra Macpherson

Sandra Macpherson was born in Perthshire and trained as a registered nurse. At the age of twenty-two the author cut short her nursing career in Edinburgh to marry, against enormous family pressure, the charismatic Euan Macpherson, her psychology tutor and twenty years her senior. Not long after, Euan inherited the family estate of Glentruim in Badenoch and Sandra Macpherson found herself the lady of a large and rambling manor house. She wrote about her experiences at Glentruim in A Strange and Wild Place (2005). She now lives in Edinburgh and is a regular player in the Really Terrible Orchestra.
