Description

A beautiful exploration in photographs of the walks the author takes with her cats along their local Pembrokeshire coast
"It's about walking, but not really covering distance. The same paths are travelled, but each time the light, the season, the thoughts inside make it different. It does have something to do with the character of cats, but also to do with writing, looking, seeing, being in a place."
Author, illustrator, and photographer Jackie Morris explores hernative Pembrokeshire in the company of her feline friends or rather, they explore the countryside while she tags alongtaking pictures. More than 100 pictures with diary notes tell the story of manywalks with many cats. Challenging perceptions and rearrangingpriorities, Jackie's insightful poetry and prose allows a glimpse of aworld in which cat is king and nature its subject. Ordered and regulated by season, you will find that, althoughthe landscape of "Cat Walk" may be familiar, what is seen is mostcertainly different.
