Snow

Hardback
by Marcus Sedgwick
Of all weathers, snow is the one that has always affected Marcus Sedgwick the most.

Arboreal: A Collection of Words from the Woods

Hardback
by COOPER, ADRIAN
A century ago woodlands were at the heart of daily life. Trees and hedgerows, copses and spinneys provided wood-fuel, thatch and bedding, woodland pasture for pigs and cattle, medicine from tree bark and a wild harvest of nuts and fruit for the home. But the role of woodlands has been in decline in the last two centuries, drifting ever further from our modern lives. Yet there is no other landscape in the Br...

They found places and whole landscapes rich in history, wildlife, culture and myth. This book presents the work they made about some of those watery places, from dew ponds to ancient we...

The Shining Levels

Love, Madness, Fishing: A Memoir

Hardback
by Petley, Dexter
Dexter Petley grew up in the 1960s and 70s, on the borders of Kent and Sussex. It was a time of eeking out a living mending cars, exterminating pests or hop picking. Boys were taught to fish by their fathers during the weekends, cast after cast plopping into willow-shaded water. While weekdays were spent at the secondary modern, where gardening and small-holding were still taught. Peopled by extraordinary c...

Through the story of one man, Caleb Bawcombe, a shepherd whose flocks graze the Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset borders, we meet men and women of humble birth - poachers, gypsies, farmers and laborers - striving to survive on the land.

Hardback

Frida Kahlo transformed the emotional and physical pain of her life into art. Her paintings make visible the invisible, interior experiences of many women. They speak of loss, loneliness, her struggle to have children, her lovers, a bus accident that shattered her body and spirit. But they are also full of passion and warmth, each canvas a defiant celebration of what it is to be human. A Love Letter from a ...
