John Lister-Kaye: Footprints in the Woods

Nairn Community & Arts Centre,
31 Aug – 31 Aug

John Lister-Kaye’s joyous childhood holidays – spent scrambling through hedges and ditches after birds and small beasts, keeping pigeons in the loft and tracking foxes round the edge of the garden -were the perfect apprenticeship for his two lifelong passions: exploring the wonders of nature and writing about them. Threaded through his adventures – from moving to the Scottish Highlands to work with Gavin Maxwell, to founding the famous Aigas Field Centre – is an elegy to his remarkable mother, and a wise and affectionate celebration of Britain’s natural landscape. His latest book is Footprints in the Woods, published by Canongate Books in July.
