Event description

Description

Neil Ansell presents his hauntingly beautiful memoir on nature and hearing loss.


The experience of being in nature alone is here set within the context of a series of walks that Ansell takes into the most remote parts of Britain, the rough bounds in the Scottish Highlands. He illustrates the impact of being alone as part of nature, rather than outside it, and as he penetrates deeper into remote hills and shorelines, he finds himself having to face unforeseen challenges.

His is a book that will make you question your place on the planet, and make you want to grab your walking boots and head for the hills.

He is the author of two previous books, Deep Country and Deer Island, and has contributed to nature programmes and wildlife documentaries, although his main focus was news and current affairs.
