Following Moltz in the wild is to step into a real-life scratch-and-sniff game. At stone-built Skara Brae, a cluster of eight Neolithic houses older than both Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids, he kneels in the grass above the settlements, and rubs the soil between his fingertips, smelling. Outside of the replica of house seven, he finds wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens). Down on the beach, behind the site, he walks the curving shore of the Bay of Skaill, plucking, photographing, surveying, identifying, illustrating, and recording it all in a black notebook otherwise tucked under his right arm.
