Encounters in the Wild

A breath of fresh air for nature writing

Encounters in the Wild is an open-ended series of small but beautifully formed hardbacks, each one a monograph on a single species. There are six titles: Fox, Barn Owl, Swan, Hare, Skylark and Badger. Two more titles are scheduled for spring of 2018.

The series, also published by Saraband, features the vibrant and stylish cover artwork of Carry Akroyd. Each book of short, loosely connected essays and poetry, is the result of Jim Crumley’s first-hand encounters gleaned from thousands of hours in nature’s company.
