We're not just losing the wild world—we've lost the habit of looking and listening. But we can still make hidden things visible, suggests Simon Barnes, and here he details numerous ways to bring the magic of nature much closer to home. In such chapters as "The Bottomless Sit," "How to Turn Into a Swan," and "How to Penetrate the Darkness," Barnes offers tips on immersing yourself in the landscape, providing information on tips and techniques so you can start noticing the world around you. Lovely line drawings appear throughout, with quotations by C.S. Lewis and other literary figures.
