Featured Saraband author
A nature writer, journalist and poet with 30 books to his name, Jim Crumley is also in high demand as a contributor for TV and radio, as well as print media. Jim’s 2014 book, The Eagle’s Way, was shortlisted for a prestigious Saltire Society award, and his Encounters in the Wild series – which sees Jim get up close and personal with Britain’s favourite animals – has found him many new readers. He has also recently written about the return of the beaver to the UK’s wetlands in Nature’s Architect (Saraband, 2015).
His book The Nature of Autumn (Saraband, 2016) has been longlisted for the Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize 2017 and was shortlisted for the Richard Jefferies Society and White Horse Bookshop Literary Prize 2017. The follow-up to that book, The Nature of Winter, is out in September 2017.
