About this book
A new collection of poems offering a unique perspective on migration and immigration. From the prize-winning poet and author of "Darwin: A Life In Poems" and "52 Ways Of Looking At A Poem".
Home is where you start from, but where is a swallow's real home? And what does 'native' mean if the English oak is an immigrant from Spain? In ninety varied poems and illuminating prose interludes, this book weaves science, myth, wild nature and human history to conjure a world created and sustained by migration.
