With a poet's eye and naturalist's affinity for wild places, Jamie reports from the field in this collection of essays. Jamie roams her native Scottish "byways and hills" and sails north to encounter whalebones and icebergs. She dissects whatever her gaze falls upon: from vistas of cells beneath a hospital microscope, to orcas rounding a headland, to the aurora borealis lighting up the frozen sea.

This is a fascinating, sensitive, and personal set of essays; her curiosity and compassion come through clearly and infects the reader; the playfulness of language and abilities of perception are edifying and uplifting, even encourages one to write something similar.
