In addition to physical things, he also considers much else that has been 'lost' from the history, landscape and collective memory of the area - such as people who played an important part in its history; the local Gaelic of the area which has now died out; the wolf, which lived freely there until the 1680s; and the ways of life of past generations of Deeside people.
The result is a vivid and stimulating insight into the way Deeside has changed over many centuries.
