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.

'Cracknell is also brilliantly descriptive, but hers is a different kind of sensuality – with her writing you don’t so much see the landscape as feel it. 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.”'
