The Easternmost Sky: Adapting to Change in the 21st Century (Hardback)Juliet Blaxland (author)
Beautifully blending memoir, nature writing and manifesto, The Easternmost Sky takes the farmlands and nature reserves of the Suffolk coast as its focal point to meditate upon climate change and its wide-reaching effects on our future.
The Easternmost Sky is part memoir, part elegy and part warning.
It was written on the Suffolk coast, in a place known for its farmland, nature reserves and the fastest coastal erosion in Europe. By exploring how climate change and social change are already affecting this agriculturally important part of the world, it is possible to imagine a very different landscape, to glimpse the future and to understand how these changes will affect us all.
