About this book

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. Taking in September to 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; thus painting an intimate – and deeply personal – portrait of a moody and majestic British autumn.

Jim's 2014 book, The Eagle's Way, was shortlisted for a Saltire Society award; his Nature's Architect (2015) studies the beaver reintroductions, and his Encounters in the Wild series – which sees Jim get up close and personal with Britain's favourite animals – has found him many new readers.
