Wild Life in the West Highlands
By Charles Henry Alston with illustrations by A. Scott Rankin (1912)


THROUGHOUT a life spent much out of doors, I have endeavoured to cultivate the habit of observation, and now offer to my fellow-lovers of birds and beasts the following nature studies of Wild Life in the West Highlands.

As an appendix I have inserted two papers on the Elephant at home and on The Kea; and I am glad to be able to include in the latter paper, notes by an early New Zealand settler on the habits of this destructive bird.

I cordially acknowledge my obligations to the editor of the Scotsman for his kindness in permitting me to reprint such of these papers as appeared originally in its columns.
