Following in the successful nature-writing style of Robert MacFarlane and Gillian Clarke, Distance and Memory is a book about remoteness: a memoir of places observed in solitude, of the texture of life through the quiet course of the seasons in the far north of Scotland. It is a book grounded in the singularity of one place?a house in northern Aberdeenshire?and threaded through with an unshowy commitment to the lost and the forgotten. In these painterly essays Peter Davidson provides his testament to the cold, clear beauty of the north and reflects on art, place, history, and landscape.
