Sightlines

by Kathleen Jamie - £9.99  Sort of Books (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780956308665 | ISBN 10: 095630866x

The outer world flew open like a door, and I wondered, what is it that we're just not seeing?
 
Five years after Findings broke the mould of nature writing, Kathleen Jamie subtly shifts our focus on landscape and the living world, daring us to look again at the 'natural', the remote and the human-made. She offers us the closest of perspectives and the most distant, too: from vistas of cells beneath a hospital microscope, or the pores of a whale's jawbone under restoration, to satellites rising over a Scottish island, or the aurora borealis lighting up an iceberg-strewn sea. We encounter killer whales circling below cliffs, noisy colonies of breeding gannets, and paintings deep in caves.
 
Written with precision, delicacy and personal recollection, Sightlines invites us to pause and look afresh at our surroundings.
