Description

Longlisted for the Wainwright Prize, 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 - melancholy, even - as the days shorten and winter's chill approaches. Charting the colourful progression from September through October and November, Jim Crumley tells the story of how unfolding autumn affects the wildlife and landscapes of his beloved countryside. Along the way, Jim experiences the deer rut, finds phenomenal redwood trees in the most unexpected of places, and contemplates climate change, the death of his father, and his own love of nature. He paints an intimate and deeply personal portrait of a moody and majestic season.
