- 10+ in stock
"Things of such magnitude deserve respect and understanding. They deserve to be remembered..."
Artist and illustrator Jo Brown started keeping her nature diary in a bid to document the small wonders of the wood behind her home in Devon.
The pages in this book are an exact replica of those in her original journal, a rich illustrated memory of Jo's discoveries in the order in which she found them.
In enchanting, minute detail she zooms in on a bog beacon mushroom, a buff-tailed bumble-bee, or a native bluebell. And she notes facts about their physiology and life history.
Secrets of a Devon Wood is a treat for the senses, a hymn to the intricate beauty of the natural world and a quiet call to arms for all of us to acknowledge and preserve it. It is a book that will stay with you long after you finally put it down.

“Makes subject accessible to wide audience”
I bought this book for my elderly sister who lives in a care home. She has written to me in rapture over the beauty, and loves learning the Latin names of plants. Clearly this book lifts the soul.
