A pilgrimage through the shapes and shades of autumn.
In autumn nature stages some of its most enchantingly beautiful displays; yet it’s also a period for reflection, even melancholy, as the days shorten and winter’s chill approaches.
Charting the colourful progression from September to November, Jim Crumley tells the story of how unfolding autumn affects the wildlife and landscapes of his beloved countryside. Along the way, he experiences the deer rut, finds redwood trees in unexpected places, and contemplates climate change and his love of nature.
He paints an intimate and deeply personal portrait of a moody and majestic season.
Jim Crumley is a passionate advocate for Britain’s landscape and animals, as well as the reintroduction of species such as sea eagles, beavers and wolves. He is a nature writer, journalist and poet with some thirty books to his name.
