August non-fiction box

A blend of memoir and nature writing, Belonging is a beautiful book which both explores the nature of home and identity and serves as a love letter to the northern landscapes of Scotland. Focusing on Abernethy’s Scots pinewoods, Amanda looks particularly at snags – dead trees left standing which support the overall health of the forest.

Featuring original artwork and photography throughout, Belonging is a gorgeous exploration of family, place and language. Subscribers will also receive a gorgeous, signed and numbered print of one of Amanda’s photographs and online access to our event with the author in August.
