A collection of 52 essays on nature and wildlife on subjects ranging from birdsong to Beavers and our role as stewards of the land. It is a collection freighted with concern at the crisis the natural world faces and reflecting Roy's considerable experience of working in nature. For instance, Roy addresses the absence of calcium in upland habitats, the case for renaming the Wildcat and the impact of apex predators on ecosystems. One of our most prominent advocates for rewilding, Roy Dennis writes with insights that stem from his close observation of the natural world - on entire ecosystems all the way to tiny details and individual species. Above all, this beautifully written collection will provide a year-round trove of inspiration and knowledge for anyone who cares about the species and landscapes around us and wants to be mindful of the many aspects of our relationship with nature. 166 pages.
