Sightlines: A Conversation with the Natural World
Kathleen Jamie, "Sightlines: A Conversation with the Natural World"
ISBN: 161519083X | 2013 | EPUB | 256 pages | 8 MB

"When the day ended with time for questions, I had some turning in my head . . . About 'nature,' mostly, which we were exhorted to reconnect with. What was it, exactly, and where did it reside?"

With her poet's eye and naturalist's affinity for wild places, Kathleen Jamie reports from the field in this enthralling collection of fourteen essays whose power derives from the stubborn attention she pays to everything around her. Jamie roams her native Scottish "byways and hills" and sails north to encounter whalebones and icebergs. Interweaving personal history with her scrutiny of landscape, Jamie dissects whatever her gaze falls upon-from vistas of cells beneath a hospital microscope, to orcas rounding a headland, to the aurora borealis lighting up the frozen sea. Written with precision, subtlety, and wry humor, Sightlines urges us to "Keep looking. Keep looking, even when there's nothing much to see."
