Scotland is famous worldwide for its natural beauty and iconic wildlife. This book brings together for the first time the native lexicon used to describe Scottish land, wood, weather, birds, water and walking. Artist Amanda Thomson collates and celebrates Scots words which reveal ways of seeing and being in the world that are in danger of disappearing forever. What emerges is a vivid evocation of the nature and people of Scotland, past and present; of lives lived between the mountains and the sky.
