In this luminous new essay collection, Kathleen Jamie visits archaeological sites, mines her own memories and, as always, looks to the natural world for her markers and guides.

Under the light of an Alaskan sky, objects are spilling from the thawing tundra, linking a Yup’ik village to its hunter-gatherer past. In the shifting dunes of a Scottish shoreline, preserved hearths and homes of Neolithic farmers are uncovered. In a grandmother’s disordered mind, memories surface of a long-ago mining accident and a ‘mither who was kind’.
