The fascinating account of the puffer trade from its roots in the 1850s to its controversial and sudden demise in 1993 - written by one who was there. A wealth of illustrations show how the puffer evolved from a horse-drawn canal scow and went on to replace the sailing gabberts in bringing vital supplies to the people of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. The story includes details of the everyday life of the puffers and their crews. All royalties on this title have been gifted by the author to the Scottish Maritime Museum.
