In the endless light of summer days, and the magical gloaming of the wee
small hours, nature in Jim's beloved Highlands, Perthshire and
Trossachs heartlands is burgeoning freely, as though there is one long
midsummer's eve, nothing reserved. For our flora and fauna, for the very
land itself, this is the time of extravagant growth, flowering and the
promise of fruit and the harvest to come. But despite the abundance, as
Jim Crumley attests, summer in the Northlands is no Wordsworthian idyll.
Climate chaos and its attendant unpredictable weather brings high drama to the lives of the animals and birds he observes. There is also a wild, elemental beauty to the land, mountains, lochs, coasts and skies, a sense of nature at its very apex during this, the most beautiful and lush of seasons. Jim chronicles it all: the wonder, the tumult, the spectacle of summer - and what is at stake as our seasons are pushed beyond nature's limits.
