  • Time Song: Searching for Doggerland

    An entrancing writer turns her attention to the mysterious submerged land that once linked Britain to Europe, teasing understanding in a very personal way from conversations and small finds on her walks.

  • Erebus: The Story of a Ship

    Michael Palin

    HMS Erebus disappeared in the Arctic in 1848, when looking for the Northwest Passage. In 2014, she was found, and the mystery of what happened became clearer. It is an extraordinary tale.

  • Shackleton’s Journey

    William Grill

    Recipient of multiple awards, and for very good reason. Utterly splendid. Ages 7 – 10.

    Hardback £14.99
  • Icebreaker: A Voyage Far North

    Horatio Clare

    HC travels around the Bay of Bothnia, by the Arctic Circle, in a Finnish government icebreaker; if his last book, ‘Orison for a Curlew’ is anything to go by, this will be fascinating and beautifully written.

    Hardback £14.99
  • The Book of Dust: Volume 1: La Belle Sauvage

    Philip Pullman

    PP’s much anticipated return to the world he first conceived in the trilogy ‘His Dark Materials’. A young boy and his daemon explore the Thames in his canoe and discover the existence of a baby, called Lyra Belacqua… Ages 8-12.

  • The North Water

    Ian McGuire

    Set in the late 1850s, the dying days of Hull’s whaling industry, this is a graphic depiction of violence, cruelty and the dark side of the human beast. Yet there is beauty and redemption too in this elegantly written, historically fascinating and morally profound novel.

    Hardback £14.99
  • A Winter Book: Selected Stories

    Tove Jansson

    The stories in this collection were published 1968-1998, during the last thirty years or so of Jansson’s life when she concentrated on adult fiction rather than her children’s books. Most are semi-autobiographical at least, the protagonist ranging in age from small child to old woman. They are deliciously odd, quiet, deceptively simple.

    Paperback £8.99
  • The Idea Of North

    Peter Davidson

    Central to this wonderfully wide-ranging book is the notion that “there is always a further north, an elsewhere”: a multiple perspective that enables PD to roam, mostly in his mind, across England, the world, through time, cultures, poets, artists, myths, frozen seas, landscapes, townscapes… Published about ten years ago, this has been reissued following the success of PD’s most recent book , The Last of the Light: A Cultural History of Twilight (hbk £20).
