Product description

Review

"A remarkable anthology of abundance capturing both the physical wonders and the psychological enchantments of this glorious season, this book conjures summer in the senses as potently as a field of freshly cut hay. Featuring some of the greatest writers on landscape as well as fantastic new voices, it is a collection that will trigger the memory, evoke new places and people, and help you see afresh the preciousness and precariousness of our natural world." -- Rob Cowen, author of Common Ground

"Lavishly capturing the nature of the season in all its slow, sensual splendour, Summer is a potent reminder of the riches that surround us, and a poignant evocation of all that we cannot bear to lose" -- Sharon Blackie, author of If Women Rose Rooted and editor of Earthlines

"A delightful miscellany of reflections on that loveliest of seasons, summer - packed with insights and encounters with nature from a wide range of authors from Gilbert White and George Eliot to a bevy of young contemporary naturalists" -- Stephen Moss, author of Wild Hares and Hummingbirds and Wild Kingdom: Bringing Back Britain's Wildlife

"[A] delicious antidote … a summer collection to wake up a tired imagination, like sunshine warming a plant to coax it into opening." -- Richard Littledale, blogger

"A lovely jewel of a book … wherever you land in the text, there will be something of interest and it won't disappoint. Beautifully observed … a book to treasure" -- jaffareadstoo.blogspot.co.uk

"Gorgeous … The kind of book the reader can joyfully dip in and out of discovering a wealth of voices from past and present. Melissa Harrison has beautifully captured the various aspects of Britain in summer" -- Ali Hope, heavenali.wordpress.com

"I've been dipping in and out of this beautiful anthology for some time but didn't want to post a review until I had read every entry. There are poems, extracts and essays spanning several centuries, so that there is something for every reader in this celebration of the season ... There's a beauty to this book - from the glorious cover to the simple illustrations like that of the swallow that adorn the inside pages. The writings are all evocative, enlightening, entertaining or thought provoking ... I shall treasure it and return to it again and again ... A perfect gift for any lover of words or nature." -- Linda's Book Bag blog

"This book will convince you that summertime is where we truly belong - not through overindulgence in nostalgia, but through realisation of our core values and roots. It will take you home" -- Matthew Oates, author of In Pursuit of Butterflies: A Fifty-year Affair

"There are so many lovely things that I could pull out from this book … I know that I will enjoy revisiting this beautifully produced anthology" -- Beyondedenrock.com

"Taken together, these pieces truly give the feeling of an English summer. The older writing is remarkably undated, which contributes to a sense of continuity across the centuries ... These are really rather lovely books. Summer is a perfect bedside companion to dip into as the days warm up. Impossible not to covet the whole four-season set." -- BookishBeck blog

About the Author

Melissa Harrison is a writer and nature lover whose first novel Clay (2013) won the Portsmouth First Fiction prize, was selected for Amazon's 'Rising Stars' programme and named by Ali Smith as a book of the year. Her second, At Hawthorn Time (2015), was shortlisted for the Costa Best Novel Award and chosen by the Telegraph as one of their Books of the Year; both books are as much about the natural world as they are about people. She writes the Nature Notebook in The Times and regularly speaks about conservation, literature, and the very fertile ground between the two.

Wherever you are there is a Wildlife Trust caring for wildlife and wild places near you. There are 47 Wildlife Trusts covering the UK all working for an environment rich in wildlife for everyone - on land and at sea. Together The Wildlife Trusts give millions of people the chance to connect with nature. You can support our work by joining your Wildlife Trust wildlifetrusts.org/join.
