I had to have it. So the little book with the big title shared space with lots of small bottles of scotch and a bunch of canned kippers for the ride home.

As soon as I reached Alaska, up to the loft it went to be read in the evening. I devoured that one. While in the middle of amazing facts including the mystery of the Picts solved.
