Description:

From an award-winning poet and essayist, fourteen essays on nature that recalibrate how we relate to the natural world. When poet and essayist Kathleen Jamie was questioned at a conference about the urgency to reconnect with nature, she wondered, what exactly, did that really mean? In Sightlines, Jamie reports back from the field, offering a landmark work about the natural world and our relationship to it. In extraordinarily precise language rarely more precise, Jamie both explores her native Scottish surroundings, interweaving personal history with the physical landscape, before and sails sailing north to encounter whalebones and icebergs. She dissects whatever her gaze falls upon, micro or macro; from vistas of cells beneath a hospital microscope, to orcas rounding a headland, to the aurora borealis lighting up the frozen sea. Written with enormous precision and subtlety, Sightlines invites us to take a moment to pause and reconsider all that nature gives us.
