About the authors
Iain Cameron - The Vanishing Ice
Iain has had a fascination with snow patches since he was a young boy growing up in Glasgow and staring out the window at the nearby peak of Ben Lomond. Since then, he has gone on to become the leading figure in researching and documenting Scotland's snow patches, which reveal a fascinating story of our changing winters.
Susanne Masters - Wild Waters
About 71% of the Earth’s surface is water, and even on dry land we remain closely connected to aquatic life. Susanne Masters' background as a plant scientist, writer and wild swimmer gives her a unique insight into the wonders of our underwater world and its amazing wildlife, all of which can be found in Wild Waters.
Alex Roddie - The Farthest Shore
A prolific outdoor writer and editor, Alex Roddie sets off on an adventure like no other to leave his online life behind. As he walks the Cape Wrath Trail in February 2019, he discovers true silence and has his eyes opened to the threats to our wild landscapes.
