In her extraordinary new collection, Kathleen Jamie examines her native Scotland - a country at once wild and contained, rural and urban, and her place within it.

In the author's own words: "2014 was a year of tremendous energy in my native Scotland, and knowing I wanted to embrace that energy and participate in my own way, I resolved to write a poem a week, and follow the cycle of the year." The poems also venture into childhood and family memory, and look to ahead to the future. The Bonniest Companie is visionary response to a year shaped and charged by both local and global forces, and will stand as a remarkable document of our times.
