We were saddened to hear of the death of Mike Tomkies on 6th October at the age of 88. Mike had been a huge and well-respected name in nature writing and conservation over his long life and had many devoted fans of his writing. We had very recently agreed with Mike to reprint what he regarded as his finest work, A Last Wild Place, which will go ahead and include an appreciation to him. An obituary by Jim Crumley is featured in The Scotsman.
For anyone wishing to order his DVDs, CDs and his novel, Let Ape and Tiger Die, please contact us as we will supply these directly. Please keep watching our website for a downloadable list.
The funeral service is on Friday 28th October 10.30 am at Whitley Bay Cemetery. Donations requested to a wildlife charity of personal choice. Enquiries to E. Turnbull & Son on 0191 257 1201
