Callander Kirk Hall, 8pm, 18 July 2019
Jim Crumley is a locally-based nature writer and the author of almost 40 books. Much of his day-to-day fieldwork is carried out in the mountains, forests, lochs and rivers to the west and north of Callander. In Seasons of the Wild, he talks about his current five-year project to write a quartet of books on Scotland’s seasons. The first of these, The Nature of Autumn, was published by Saraband in 2016, The Nature of Winter followed in 2017, and The Nature of Spring is newly published this year.
The books are based on thousands of hours spent in nature’s company over thirty years as a full-time writer. In addition to his home patch, his books’ landscapes range from Shetland to Galloway and from Colonsay to the Isle of May, and explore heartland Highlands like Rannoch, Glencoe and the Cairngorms, with occasional forays furth of Scotland. Expect unforgettable encounters with wildlife and thought-provoking insights into nature’s big themes, such as climate change and nature conservation.
