Unto The Hills
Preface


TO JOCK

WHO HAS HEARD THE SONG OF THE HILLS
AND THE CALL OF THE ISLES
AND WILL THEREFORE UNDERSTAND

A great deal has been written about the Scottish Highlands; and it is perhaps with a certain amount of apprehension that one realises that yet another book has been added to the list. There is, however, one justification for this venture -- that it has, in poetry, prose and photography, attempted to recapture the ever-changing moods of the hills. I have had the great privilege of being present during most of the moments described in this book; and if in reading through these pages you gain one half of the pleasure they bring me, you will be fortunate indeed.

It is a long time since many of us were able to wander among the hills, and to the reluctant exiles this book will bring many memories, either through comparing experiences with the authoress or by gazing longingly at the magic of Mr. Robert Adam, who uses his camera with the skill of a true artist, and whose work in the field of Highland photography needs no introduction.

To those who have never known the Scottish hills in all their glory, storm and rain, sunshine and snow, perhaps this book will prove the key that will open many a magic casement. There is a beauty and a pleasure waiting for them beyond their dreams.

H. J. M.
