The Shaman Birches of Argyll is Joanna Paterson's exuberant, intense synthesis of poetry and image documenting her fascination with the natural landscape of the Inner Hebrides. This volume is full of the freshness of sea winds, natural light and the ravishing changeability of Scottish weathers in all seasons. Sensitively and vibrantly wrought, these poems show Paterson, in her other life a Professor of Natural History at the University of Glasgow, to be a sure exponent of landscape celebration.


This is a large paperback edition, with text and illustration by Joanna Paterson, typeset by Gerry Cambridge.
