'Let me tell you from the start: this is a wonderful book. The title suggests the background: we are in a deep ecology frame - Saint Francis with First Nation wisdom of the wild. We start with an encounter with a bear in Alaska and the way that Jim Crumley's guide, a seasoned bear watcher, deals with the encounter. ...The writing...is very attractive and each chapter has its delights. It carries the messages that Jim Crumley wishes to convey with skill and passion. ... I liked the description of the late Don MacCaskill's dream that beavers might return to the Lochan Buidhe to the north of Loch Lubnaig.' - John Muir Trust Journal '... an intensely personal and passionate study of man's relationship with the nature that surrounds him... The moment where he claims to feel some sort of connection with that bear is a magical one... People's need to make the effort to connect with nature, to conserve and to coexist - on nature's terms - is a constant theme. ... If all Scottish writing in this genre is of the same order as Crumley's then we certainly are impoverished.' - Stirling Observer '... he draws us into his latest book on Scotland's wildlife... with unhurried ease and gently flowing enthusiasm. ...His observations will mostly be those of a passionate naturalist; then another instinct takes over and he will write poetry. Every well-chosen word is our hearts and into our imaginations. Jim Crumley has been called the best nature writer now working in Great Britain and this new book proves how true that is. ... I particularly enjoyed Wind's Work which doesn't actually deal with specific birds or animals but is a simple, beautifully-crafted description of a walk in the high woods during a gale. ... a thoroughly enjoyable book and though-provoking work.' - The Scots Magazine
