Something of his Art: Walking to Lubeck with J. S. Bach

Cornerstones: Subterranean writings; from Dartmoor to the Arctic Circle

In Cornerstones, some of Britain's leading landscape and nature writers consider their relationship with the ground beneath their ...

Hardback
by Hetty Saunders
Since his rise to fame in 1967 when his work "The Peregrine" was awarded the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize, J A Baker has captured the popular imagination with his vivid descriptions of British landscapes and native wildlife.

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...

Itsstrength and elasticity are qualities our Neolithic ancestors recognisedwhile building thei...

A Shepherd's Life

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. As we read, the cumulative affect of their stories becomes much more than a record of rural life. It reads like a lost hymn, sung by people whose lives were disregarded and w...

A Love Letter from a Stray Moon

Hardback
by Griffiths, Jay
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 ...
