Abstract:

"During her husband?s hospital stay for a life-threatening illness, Kathleen Jamie didn?t pray, but she did find herself paying very close attention to the world around her. In Findings, she shares her direct, uncluttered observations of the natural and unnatural world?seen from her kitchen window, on the streets of Edinburgh, in hospital corridors, in the Outer Hebrides. What she finds: an awe-inspiring salmon run that turns out to have been reengineered so that no salmon can possibly reach the top of the falls. A disembodied doll head, caught with the carcass of a whale on a remote island, where crofters once combed for driftwood. She wonders "if durability is still a virtue, when we have invented plastic."--Publisher description.
