Format: Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
In this finely produced paperback volume Kathleen Jamie casts her artistic eye and poetic mind over various wonders of the natural world. Subjects as diverse as storm petrels, an archaeological dig, ice bergs, a cancer tumour and an eclipse of the moon are cast in beautiful prose.

Having a somewhat squeamish nature I almost skipped the chapter titled 'Pathologies', the one in which the cancer tumour is explored, - but, my goodness, I am so glad I did read it. Such wonder found in the terrible beauty of cancerous cells.

An elegant reading of our extraordinary world.
