Turas Troimh Alba
Turas Troimh Alba (Gaelic for "Journey Through Scotland") is a beautiful collection of 170 color photographs with interesting, historical, and amusing text. The author/photographer/publisher spent four years in Scotland, initially on assignment with the U.S. Marine Corps and later as a bicycle tour guide. His travels, primarily on single-track roads and away from the main thoroughfares, present a delightful view of the country and its people not often encountered by most visitors. The quality of the photography is superb, as evidenced by the author's meeting with a senior editor at National Geographic magazine after she saw the book and was intrigued by it.
From the Borders to the Highlands, from the East Neuk to the Western Isles, Turas Troimh Alba is a journey to be enjoyed time and time again.
"I was very pleased indeed to have the chance to read and look at the wonderful photographs in your charming book of Scotland. You have successfully captured some exquisite rural scenes, many of which have come from my beloved Border country. I would highly recommend it to anyone as a delightful insight into Scotland and Scottish rural life and, in particular, the Border country."

"Turas Troimh Alba recounts the places he saw and the people he met as he wandered down single track roads and narrow pathways far from the main thoroughfares. The 170 color photographs in Mr. Gordon's book are both beautiful and memorable, and the accompanying captions are equally engaging."
