The outer world flew open like a door, and I wondered - what is it that we're just not seeing?

In this greatly anticipated sequel to Findings, prize-winning poet and renowned nature writer Kathleen Jamie takes a fresh look at her native Scottish landscapes, before sailing north into iceberg-strewn seas. Her gaze swoops vertiginously too; from a countryside of cells beneath a hospital microscope, to killer whales rounding a headland, to the constellations of satellites that belie our sense of the remote. Written with her hallmark precision and delicacy, and marked by moments in her own life, Sightlines offers a rare invitation to pause and to pay heed to our surroundings.

“Sightlines”

This book is just lovely. It takes you to places you'll never go to, and gets you in touch with feelings you can only half remember, but you're richer and wiser for the experience.
