BLUE-SKYE (and other) BOOKS

by James Merryweather

A Princeton University Press WildGuide
Britain's Ferns, Clubmosses, Quillworts and Horsetails
The only comprehensive photographic guide to the ferns, clubmosses, quillworts and horsetails of Britain.

"If you have any interest in the British flora, whether as a beginner or old hand, it is an essential acquisition, and quite exceptional value for money."
"... this is the most brilliant, informative, easy to navigate, and beautifully written key for naturalists."


HOLES was written as part of a community response to planning applications from big business concerns who would install sea-polluting open net fish farms in the lochs of south Skye.

This pre-publication edition was released early and not quite finished (the need was urgent) so that residents of and visitors to the Isle of Skye might get fully up-to-speed about the many aspects of this controversy before the brief but intensive twenty-eight-day consultations open for public comment, when the public have their one chance to say what they think (as they did!). The book remains highly relevant. Please don't buy or eat Scottish farmed salmon.

Blue-Skye's sole author, typesetter, designer and publisher is James Merryweather who hopes you will find something to enjoy here. He particularly hopes you'll want to read his most important thinking in Reality is enough and will take the User-Friendly Seashore Guide, which has been specially designed to enable anyone (plain English!) to identify seashore life, when you visit the coast.

Blue-Skye is a small publishing establishment upstairs at the Academy for Aggressive Secularism in the tiny hamlet of Auchtertyre, a few miles landward of the bridge to the Isle of Skye (above). So far the Blue-Skye book catalogue consists of just three. In addition, there there are several books from other publishers and an assortment of field guides, wildlife posters, guides on DVD, and musical transcriptions for purchase or free download.
