During her husband's hospital stay for a life-threatening illness, Kathleen Jamie found herself paying very close attention to the world around her. In Findings, she offers direct, uncluttered explorations of the natural and unnatural world—seen from her kitchen window, on the streets of Edinburgh, in hospital corridors, in the Outer Hebrides.  What she finds: an awe-inspiring salmon run that turns out to have been engineered so that no salmon can possibly reach the top of the falls. A disembodied doll’s head, washed up with the carcass of a whale on an abandoned island, where crofters once gathered driftwood. She wonders: "is durability still a virtue, when we have invented plastic?"
