Our speaker for September will be Jim Crumley, a nature writer, journalist, and poet with 25 books to his name. He is also in high demand as a contributor for both broadcast and print media. His book, The Eagle's Way, was shortlisted for a Saltire Society award; his Nature's Architect studies the beaver reintroductions, and his Encounters in the Wild series--which sees Jim get up close and personal with Britain's favorite animals--has found him many new readers.
