Antlers of Water

Writing on the Nature and Environment of Scotland

edited by Kathleen Jamie
AUD $39.99

The first modern anthology of Scottish nature writing which acknowledges the realities of our times, edited, curated and introduced by the award-winning author of Findings.

The first ever modern collection of contemporary Scottish writing on nature and landscape, Antlers of Water showcases the diversity and radicalism of modern Scottish nature writing today.

Edited, curated and introduced by the award-winning Kathleen Jamie, this collection features a mix of prose, poetry and photography. With contributions from Amy Liptrot, Jen Hadfield, Malachy Tallack, Chitra Ramaswamy, Jim Crumley, Linda Cracknell, Karine Polwart, Gavin Francis, and more, Antlers of Water urges us to renegotiate our relationship with the more-than-human world, in writing which is by turns celebratory, radical and political.
