SECOND OPINION: The Nature of Autumn by Jim Crumley

Review published on November 11, 2017.

This is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading by Jim Crumley, but it won’t be the last.

From September through to the end of November, just as Winter approaches, Jim has painted a picture for the reader to escape into.

The colours and hues of Autumn, to the rutting of the deer, all of this is in this book. Almost poetical, you can feel the cold crisp air, see the changing colours as the leaves fall to the ground, where small mice and hedgehogs make their homes. The noises of the antlers from the rutting deer echo in the cold crisp air in Scotland.

Jim Crumley’s book has for me painted a landscape in my mind’s eye that will stay there for a very long time.

This is a book to treasure, one for all nature lovers, one to be re-read, just as the leaves to start to change.

Angie Rhodes 5/5
