In the spring of 2011, I moved to a house on the northeast coast of the Shetland mainland. What attracted me to the place was not just the house itself but the garden, which was large and, unusually for Shetland, partly populated by trees.
The short essays here were an attempt to get to know this place, and the birds, animals and plants that lived there. Many of the ideas explored in these pieces would later be expanded in Sixty Degrees North.
