Sightlines: A Conversation with the Natural World

Sightlines: A Conversation with the Natural World - Kathleen Jamie As with all books that are written by poets, this is a delight to read. The language is eloquent and lyrical , without being pretentious. She takes us, through a series of essays, on a journey to places in the far north of the UK and Scandinavia. To islands and museums and more importantly to the part of the mind that communicates with nature. Well worth reading. Shall be reading some of her other books
