Product description

Review

"A book to live with and to love… features a wonderfully various array of poetry and prose, from Chaucer to the present day, that allows us to see the arrival and the passing of our most fecund season (and those who have written about it) in fresh and stimulating ways." -- Matthew Adams, Independent

"{A} tremendous, soul-lifting collection … a profound evocation of what rejuvenation means to the winterstunned psyche" --Lucy Jones, BBC Wildlife Magazine

"The cover of this book is absolutely striking… I couldn't wait to look inside. It is so full of life… Full of perfectly mixed passages of the wonders of nature, this is a book I will turn to each year as the vivacious season of spring approaches." -- The Book Magnet

"A very lovely object … I was captivated by the writing. These were the words of people who wanted to share their experiences of the world around them; some of them wrote to inform, some of them wrote to celebrate, and of course the very best of them did both … There is nothing in it that doesn't deserve its place, and I can think of nothing that should be there but isn't. It would make a lovely Easter gift. It's a book that I know I will enjoy revisiting." -- Beyondedenrock.com

"An anthology edited by Melissa Harrison was never going to stick to [the] beaten track … important is her imaginative commissioning of new works and choice of previously published pieces. There are several refreshing novelties in this book … Serves to remind us that the future of nature writing - if we must use the label - is under no threat" --Laurence Rose, thelongspring.com

"Everything about this book, from Lynn Hatzius' gorgeous cover, to the rich cream of the pages, to the meticulously selected content is an invitation … to taste the Spring in the air, to hear the grasses grow, to lose yourself in a vast sky or to watch the farmers at work. The book, like a sparkling Spring stream swollen with meltwater, is just begging for you to dip in." --Richard Littledale, blogger

About the Author

Melissa Harrison is a writer and nature lover whose first novel Clay (2013) won the Portsmouth First Fiction prize, was selected for Amazon's 'Rising Stars' programme and named by Ali Smith as a book of the year. Her second, At Hawthorn Time (2015), was shortlisted for the Costa Best Novel Award and chosen by the Telegraph as one of their Books of the Year; both books are as much about the natural world as they are about people. She writes the Nature Notebook in The Times and regularly speaks about conservation, literature, and the very fertile ground between the two.

Wherever you are there is a Wildlife Trust caring for wildlife and wild places near you. There are 47 Wildlife Trusts covering the UK all working for an environment rich in wildlife for everyone - on land and at sea. Together The Wildlife Trusts give millions of people the chance to connect with nature. You can support our work by joining your Wildlife Trust wildlifetrusts.org/join.
