The Nature of Summer

by Jim Crumley - £12.99  Saraband (2020)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781912235728 | ISBN 10: 1912235722

In the abiding light of summer, the nature in Jim Crumley's heartlands of Scotland is burgeoning freely. Seals sing, brown hares bound, dragonflies dance. His silent vigils reveal not only an enchanting account of summer's exuberant profusion, but the unfolding climate chaos.
 
From declining puffin populations to the demise of entire glaciers, this is a world in crisis... and of everyday miracles on land, mountains, lochs, coasts and skies. Jim Crumley's intimate portraits branch out beyond the heart of the Highlands to memories of summers past: from kittiwake cliffs in far-flung St Kilda to the pure wilderness of Arctic Norway, where sea eagles rule.
 
The Nature of Summer explores what is at stake as our seasons are pushed beyond nature's limits.
