This book covers the environmental, historical and cultural changes to the land and inhabitants of a little valley in the Highlands of Scotland, Badenoch, stretching from pre-history to the cessation of World War 1. Bounded by the Monadhliath and Grampian ranges, with River Spey flowing through to the sea, the topography, environment and climate dictated the number of people the valley could support. Control over land and resources was fundamental in maintaining social relationships and the folk from Badenoch did it well. Australia and New Zealand provided an opportunity and a lifestyle that they could only dream of in far-off Badenoch. Land was the key. Some returned to Badenoch, having made their fortune, whilst others settled into their new homes; this book tells their stories and the story of the land they left behind.

Born on a windswept island off the coast of Tasmania, the great granddaughter of Scottish immigrants, the author has always had a love and respect of wild and challenging regions. She is a keen traveller and a lover of history and people. The Spirit of Badenoch is the culmination of 10 years research and the basis from which many strong ties and friendships have grown.
