From Leonardo da Vinci on the shifting colours of the sky to Charlotte Bronte on the wild moors of Yorkshire, and from DH Lawrence inhabiting the mind of the indomitable tortoise to the intrepid Isabella Bird climbing a Hawaiian volcano, this unusual anthology showcases many voices - lyrical, awestruck, often deeply reflective. The texts gathered here, many accompanied by rarely seen artwork from early editions, are all grounded in close observation and real love for landscape, and reveal the tradition of nature writing to be deep-rooted and infinitely varied.
