The Wee Mad
Jack & Barbara Maloney
Wee Mad Road A midlife escape to the Scottish Highlands
by Jack Maloney
and Barbara Maloney
Have you ever dreamed of escaping the doldrums of suburban midlife
and starting over? Then The Wee Mad Road is your "how
to" manual! The Wee Mad Road is a warm and witty account
of the two years the authors spent in the Highlands of Scotland.
After their children grew up and left home, (and before they could
move back again!) authors Jack and Barbara Maloney sold their house
in a midwest suburb and ran off to the Highlands of Scotland. Following
a one-lane track called "The Wee Mad Road," they discovered
an isolated remnant of traditional Gaelic culture, peopled by characters
as unique and memorable as the surrounding mountains.
They settled into an old stone cottage and spent two years in repeated
collisions with quaint Highland ways. Entries from Barbaras
diary detail the realities of village life, while Jack recounts tales
of poachers, crofters and lairds in one of mainland Britains
most scenic and isolated corners.
6"x9" softcover. 230 pages. Every book is personally
signed by the authors!
