'Buchan on Angling' by Keith Harwood,
‘Buchan on Angling’ by Keith Harwood, published by Medlar Press. John Buchan is best known as a spy thriller writer, but he was also a very keen angler. Shortly before his death, he had started work on an autobiographical account of his fishing exploits, only two chapters of which were written. These, together with a number of articles and poems on angling form the nucleus of this book. There are chapters on his life and background, the importance of angling in his life and the influence of angling in his literary works. This book will appeal not just to anglers but also to those interested in the distinguished life and works of such an important figure in the history of the 20th century. New hardback, 232 pages.
