Doubling Back reviewed in Scotland on Sunday today
25 May 2014
An interesting feature-length review looking at the book in terms of its place in the 'nature writing' canon.

On a walk along St Cuthbert’s Way between Melrose and Lindisfarne, for example, as she passes from Scotland into England, she writes: “Across the high plateau we were blown on old wide tracks, which seemed articulate and alive in their carrying of us, allowing us freedom to look around.”'
