Place a hold Read a sample Read a sample
From the sight of the first snowdrops and the stirring of new life through to the buzzing days of early summer, Spring will capture springtime through different pieces of nature writing, describing the lifecycles of flora and fauna, startling moments of transition, seasonal change in cities and gardens, wildlife experiences that epitomise a point in the year, or the shifting patterns of country life through a collection of pieces, old and new, threaded together to mirror the unfolding of the season. Including extracts from classic works of great naturalists, literature that reflects the changing seasons, specially commissioned texts and writing from household names, the book will also include pieces from unknown writers that capture the experiences of wildlife throughout the UK, offering a rich diversity of perspectives. It is a time of awakening. In our ­fields, hedgerows and woodlands, our beaches, cities and parks, an almost imperceptible shift soon becomes a riot of sound and colour: winter ends, and life surges forth once more. Whether in town or country, we all share in this natural rhythm, in the joy and anticipation of the changing year.


In prose and poetry both old and new, Spring mirrors the unfolding of the season, inviting us to see what's around us with new eyes. Featuring original writing by Rob Cowen, Miriam Darlington and Stephen Moss, classic extracts from the work of George Orwell, Clare Leighton and H. E. Bates, and fresh new voices from across the UK, this is an original and inspiring collection of nature writing that brings the British springtime to life in all its vivid glory.
