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. "A delightful meditation." Stephen Moss, The Guardian "Breathtaking...this magical pilgrimage visits enchanting and hidden places...with characteristic moments of close observation, immersion and poetry Crumley witnesses the melancholic textures and haunting transformations of this most beautiful season. This nature book is a delight." Miriam Darlington, BBC Wildlife "Crumley always manages to combine an extraordinary depth of...knowledge with vivid warm writing and a clear love of what he is writing about....Crumley is one of an endangered species – the real naturalists. Enchanting." Sara Maitland, BBC Countryfile "A cornucopia of autumnal delight." Polly Pullar, The Scots Magazine "A book that quietly celebrates life, at the very moment life is most quietly celebrating itself." Brian Morton, Herald "A love song to earth's reviver and replenisher." Dundee Courier

During winter, dark days of wild storms can give way to the perfect, glistening stillness of frost-encrusted winter landscapes - it is the stuff of wonder and beauty, of nature at its utmost. In The Nature of Winter, Jim Crumley ventures into our countryside to experience firsthand the chaos and the quiet solitude of nature's rest period. He bears witness to the lives of remarkable animals such as golden eagles, red deer and even whales as they battle intemperate weather and the turbulence of climate change. ?In the snow Jim discovers ancient footsteps that lead him to reflect on the journey of his personal nature-writing life - a journey that takes in mountain legends, dear departed friends and an enduring fascination and deep love for nature. Simply, he evokes winter in all its drama, in all its pathos, in all its glory.

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.

The human heart is a source of love, but it is often also a source of pain and suffering, and cannot be effectively cured with medicine or by medical remedies (...) The best and most effective way to heal the pain and suffering is to understand our hearts and minds, and the hearts and minds of others. Understanding The Heart is a book that helps readers do just that: understand and heal the pain and suffering of our own hearts and minds and of those around us, so that everyone can live in happiness and with loving-kindness. With this book, I wish you much happiness so that you will never have to live with a broken or wounded heart. -Professor Tran Van Khe, Ph.D, Paris-Sorbonne University, Paris, France; Corresponding Member of the European Academy of the Sciences, Letters and Arts
