From Leonardo da Vinci on the shifting colors of the sky to Charlotte Brontë on the wild moors of Yorkshire, from intrepid Isabella Bird climbing a Hawaiian volcano to D.H. Lawrence inhabiting the mind of the indomitable tortoise, this eclectic anthology of nature writing showcases many voices, accompanied by rarely seen illustrations from printed works in the collection of the British Library. Lyrical, awestruck, often deeply reflective, the selections include scientific observations and poetry, diary entries and novel extracts, with thoughts from William Wordsworth, John Milton, Virgil, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Virginia Woolf, and George Orwell.
