1.0 out of 5 stars This could get children killed., 2 Jan. 2013
Children die of measles in the UK every year. Not many, I'll grant you, but that's no comfort if it's your kid. There is nothing marvelous about measles. Encouraging people to htink otherwise is downright irresponsible.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eloquent evocation of place and feeling., 28 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Findings (Paperback)
Findings, by Kathleen Jamie is a startling evocation of place. Jamie presents a collection of essays and observations of her native Scotland, bringing a poet's eye to the landscape and city skylines. There is a keen awareness of the beauty of the natural world, and of the artifacts built by people, be they ruined bothys in isolated glens, the monuments of Edinburgh or a preserved specemin in a jar.
It is always a joy to see the world as others do, and Kathleen Jamie is generous and eloquent in her observations. A book to make you open your eyes and love the world again - as such, it is highly recommended.
