Hugh Miller Geologist

Hugh Miller GeologistMy Schools and Schoolmasters A memoir of the schooldays of one of the most extraordinary minds Scotland has produced, Hugh Miller. He rose from a modest background to become both a specialist in the field of geology and a generalist in the wider literary world, admired by Carlyle, Dickens and Ruskin.

 

Scenes and LegendsScenes and Legends of the North of... Scotland. A monument to Miller's pioneering work as a folklorist and social historian, Scenes and Legends of the North of Scotland is full of fascinating tales of ghosts, mermaids and witches, alongside true stories - like those of the amazingly eccentric Sir Thomas Urquhart, and the devastating cholera epidemics of the 1830s.
