‘We’re not just losing the wild world. We’re forgetting it. We’re no longer noticing it.’
Climate change and the decline of many species of animals is unarguably one of the biggest issues we face in our lifetimes. In this book, Barnes offers a new approach to how we can change our interaction with nature on an individual level and hopefully as a result reconnect with a part of ourselves we have long since lost. Writing against the backdrop of writers of beloved classics such as C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling and J. R. R. Tolkien, Barnes challenges us to look at nature in a more magical way. Using the magical simplicity of everyday objects (and some new ones!) we can open ourselves up to the undiscovered world of mammals, reptiles and creatures that not many of us even know are there and thus reawaken our wild spirit. Based around 23 tips and techniques to discover the wonders of nature, this book is perfect for the amateur naturalist or anyone with a passion for nature who wants to get closer to it.
‘There is wildness in us all, but in most of us it’s latent, sleeping, unused.’
