  • Underland A Deep Time Journey
    Underland A Deep Time Journey
    'Into the underland we have long placed that which we fear and wish to lose, and that which we love and wish to save . . . '

    From the vast underground mycelial networks by which trees communicate to the ice-blue depths of glacial moulins, and from North Yorkshire to the Lofoten Islands, Robert Macfarlane traces a voyage through the worlds beneath our feet.

    He reaches back into the deep history of the planet, through the layers of rock and ancient buried objects, and forward to the future, the legacy of the anthropocene and the world we bequeath our descendants.

    Underland is Macfarlane at his dazzling best - the lyrical, the political and the philosophical come together in this profound exploration of the relationship between landscape and the human heart.

  • Vesper Flights
    Vesper Flights
    Animals don't exist to teach us things, but that is what they have always done, and most of what they teach us is what we think we know about ourselves.

    From the bestselling author of H is for Hawk comes Vesper Flights, a transcendent collection of essays about the human relationship to the natural world.

    Helen Macdonald brings together a collection of her best-loved writing along with new pieces covering a thrilling range of subjects. There are essays here on headaches, on catching swans, on hunting mushrooms, on twentieth-century spies, on numinous experiences and high-rise buildings; on nests and wild pigs and the tribulations of farming ostriches.

    Vesper Flights is a book about observation, fascination, time, memory, love and loss and how we make the world around us. Moving and frank, personal and political, it confirms Helen Macdonald as one of this century's greatest nature writers.

  • Wild Child: Coming Home to Nature
    Wild Child: Coming Home to Nature
    From climbing trees and making dens, to building sandcastles and pond-dipping, many of the activities we associate with a happy childhood take place outdoors. And yet, the reality for many contemporary children is very different. The studies tell us that we are raising a generation who are so alienated from nature that they can't identify the commonest birds or plants, they don't know where their food comes from, they are shuttled between home, school and the shops and spend very little time in green spaces - let alone roaming free.

    In this timely and personal book, celebrated nature writer Patrick Barkham draws on his own experience as a parent and a forest school volunteer to explore the relationship between children and nature. Unfolding over the course of a year of snowsuits, muddy wellies, and sunhats, Wild Child is both an intimate story of children finding their place in natural world, and a celebration of the delight we can all find in even modest patches of green.

  • Year of the Dogs
    Year of the Dogs
    A truly charming collection of more than 100 canine close-ups, profiles and full-body shots, together with a comedic narrative about each dog.

    As a National Geographic photographer, Vince Musi travelled the world to photograph lions, tigers and bears. All that changed when his son turned sixteen – he decided to try something different; to spend some quality time at home and open a hometown studio to photograph dogs.

    From a farting bulldog to an opera-loving labrador, Musi chronicles the personalities of everyday dogs in words and photographs. His stunning portraits are matched with witty ‘dogographies’ and a comic blend of Vince’s own personal stories – from girl-next-door crushes to professional failures – from his wildly popular Instagram feed.

    Now, for the first time, The Year of the Dogs brings together this eccentric cast of characters in one volume, doggone guaranteed to put a smile on the face of anyone who loves animals.
