The Wood in Winter - illustrations Angela Harding
This title is for those of us who love tales of the natural world, and who enjoy seasonal woodland walks when things lie deep and crisp and even. John Lewis-Stempel is an award winning writer and journalist who is known for his books on history and the natural world. His family has been farming the same area in Herefordshire for over 700 years, and it’s this love of the land and his close observation of the world of plants and animals which have led to this beautiful winter woodland walk. He writes about why being in a wood in winter strips us to our essential soul, and how close encounters with the animals who thrive in this hard season remind us of our own deep connection to the earth. two wonderful winter poems by Nancy Campbell and Jackie Kay provide a fitting way into and out of the wood.
