Tiffany Francis' Dark Skies: A Journey into the Wild Night is a beautiful blend of nature and travel writing taking the reader from Francis' home in rural England to Norway, the Black Forest, the Baltic sea and beyond to uncover the mysteries of the nocturnal world. Francis does a wonderful job exploring how the known and familiar becomes new and mysterious after dark and encourages us all to look at the world from a new perspective.
Dark, Salt, Clear: The Life of A Fishing Town is an amazing work of narrative nonfiction that is much more than just a portrait of a Cornish fishing town. Taking its name from the Elizabeth Bishop poem "At the Fishhouses," Dark, Salt, Clear is a beautiful blend of history, literary criticism, and nature writing that explores the meaning of belonging and authenticity. Ash's true gift is her ability to completely immerse you--from the decks of a fishing boat, to the local pub, to the windswept cliffs. This is a journey you won't want to end.
