"The outer world flew open like a door, and I wondered - what is it that we're just not seeing?"
In the third essay from her book, SIGHTLINES, Scottish poet and travel writer Kathleen Jamie recalls how a simple cup shaped her future.
Five years after FINDINGS broke the mould of nature writing, award-winning Scottish poet 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.
"Kathleen Jamie, the Scottish poet, has written a book that transcends the definition of nature study ... SIGHTLINES is a work of intense purity and quiet genius and we're lucky to have it."
