Donald MacIntosh's travels have taken him around the world during a working life which has spanned the inter-war years to the 1980s. In that time he has always maintained a love for the pursuit he first learnt on the shores of Wigtown Bay: fishing. In this collection of tales he recalls characters and incidents from around the world which all have something fishy about them. From his native Scotland, through West and Central Africa where he lived for many years as a tree surveyor, to Newfoundland and Canada where he lectured for many years, the stories are recounted in MacIntosh's unique style.

Following the success of Travels in the White Man’s Grave comes this further collection of Donald MacIntosh’s immensely entertaining memoirs of his African travels. As always, the tales are rich with characters and humor: Laval, the temperamental but highly successful fishing baboon; Jig–Time Charlie, ladies' man and local footballing legend; and the beautiful Titi, who employs her feminine guile and cat droppings to win an international angling competition. As sharp and cutting as the teeth of a tiger fish, Forest of Memories finds Donald MacIntosh, once again, in splendidly wicked form.About the Author:
Donald MacIntosh was born in 1927 and is the eldest son of a Perthshire woodcutter and a mother from the Isle of Mull. For 30 years he worked in the rainforests of West Africa. He contributes widely to national magazines such as The Oldie.
