The Nature of Autumn (Hardback)


Longlisted for the Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize 2017

In autumn nature stages some of its most enchantingly beautiful displays; yet it’s also a period for reflection, melancholy even, as the days shorten and winter’s chill approaches.

Taking in September to November, Jim Crumley tells the story of how unfolding autumn affects the wildlife of his beloved land – from the windswept Western Isles and the unforgiving Cairngorm plateau to the gentler, graceful landscapes of Loch Lomond and Stirling. Along the way, Jim experiences the deer rut, finds phenomenal redwood trees in the most unexpected of places, and contemplates climate change, the death of his father, and his own love of nature; thus painting an intimate – and deeply personal – portrait of a moody and majestic British autumn.
