Product description


What makes Stargazing such a beautiful book is that it is more than an elegy to a vanished profession. It is a elegy to youth and to the constellation of dreams, ambitions and anxieties that is more intense at 19 than it can ever be again. * * Sunday Herald * * Both an elegy to an extinct way of life and a tribute to the spirit and expertise of the men who embodied this romance of sea and sky. * * The Observer * * Few of these books, however, are as wistfully evocative or as thoughtful as Hill's Stargazing. * * The Independent * * A passionate account and a fine commemoration of the first profession ever to be made totally redundant. -- Bella Bathurst, author of "The Lighthouse Stevensons" excellent * * The Scotsman Magazine * *

Book Description

"A moving and hilarious memoir of life on three Scottish lighthouses - and a beautiful tribute to a long-lost vocation that will always capture the imagination."
