"Four volumes of seasonal writing about nature - get them all" -- Mark Avery, best books of 2016
"This quartet, which has appeared over the past year, is published in support of The Wildlife Trusts, which look after some 2,300 special places in the United Kingdom. Combining work from established and up-and-coming writers with the observations of supporters of the trusts, it is both a celebration of the natural world and an encouragement to get out and enjoy it - whatever the weather" -- Michael Kerr, The Telegraph Books of the Year 2016
"Classic nature writers and also some exciting new voices" -- Stephen Moss, Guardian Books of the Year 2016
"A fantastic series designed to celebrate the seasons" --LandLove magazine
About the Author
Melissa Harrison is a writer and nature lover whose first novel, Clay (2013)won the Portsmouth First Fiction prize; her second, At Hawthorn Time (2015), was shortlisted for the Costa Best Novel Award and longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction. Both are as much about the natural world as they are about people. She writes the Nature Notebook in The Times and her most recent book is Rain: Four Walks in English Weather.
Founded in 1912 by Charles Rothschild as the Society for the Promotion of Nature Reserves, today The Wildlife Trusts are the UK's largest voluntary environmental organisation striving to restore wildlife on land and at sea. There are 47 individual Wildlife Trusts, all working for an environment rich in wildlife for everyone.

These are delightful books for browsing on a long Winter's evening by the fire (or a Spring afternoon in a patch of sunshine... or a Summer's day under the shade of an old Apple Tree, or even whilst refusing to get up on a foggy Autumn morning)
A whole cornucopia of delights, with well-known pieces... and not so well known - all giving delightful insights into the changing of the seasons.
My wife was delighted, and is currently going through Spring (as it has sort-of arrived)
Great to help you follow the seasons, and their wild-life, their fruits and their weather
