A new book from the author of "Findings", which broke the mould of nature writing. The prize-winning poet and renowned author Jamie takes a fresh look at her native Scottish landscapes, before sailing north into iceberg-strewn seas. Her gaze sweeps from a countryside of cells beneath a hospital microscope, to killer whales rounding a headland, to the satellites that belie our sense of the remote.
Multi-award winning poet Kathleen Jamie was born in the west of Scotland in 1962. She has written two works of non-fiction: Among Muslims , an acclaimed travel narrative, and Findings, the ground-breaking nature/travel book set in Scotland. She lives in Fife and is a Professor of Creative Writing at Stirling University.
