Combining history, myth and travelogue, The Bone Cave recounts a month-long walk following the invisible strands of story across the Scottish Highlands, exploring the weave of folklore and landscape in which human beings have sought to make sense of the world.
This is a book about stories – old stories of people and place, and of the more-than-human world.
