Enjoy a whole year of the very finest nature writing, with one carefully selected piece to savour every day.

This beautifully illustrated daily anthology brings you the very best of nature writing from around the world and through the centuries, from Pliny the Elder's Natural History to modern authors such as Helen Macdonald and Robert Macfarlane. Encompassing fact and fiction, essays and field guides, letters and diaries, it's a rich banquet of prose, the perfect companion to help your mind escape into the world of nature every day.

It contains descriptions of nature in all its guises: Virginia Woolf on snails, Kenneth Grahame on the charms of a riverbank, Willa Cather on the rolling American prairies, and, via L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables on Octobers. David Attenborough pops up to talk about our responsibility to the natural environment, Edith Holden provides evocative descriptions from The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady, and Henry David Thoreau, of course, sends dispatches from Walden Pond. We meet Rudyard Kipling's jungle animals and Jack London's wild dogs, and Mark Twain explains why a camel is not jumpable.

Keep this wonderful celebration of nature by your bedside and it will become the perfect start or close to each day of the year.
