Abridged by: Pete Nichols

"The outer world flew open like a door, and I wondered - what is it that we're just not seeing?"

In the final essay from her book SIGHTLINES Scottish poet and travel writer Kathleen Jamie makes a few house calls and learns to dit-dit diddle-dit.

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."
