  • Summerby Melissa Harrison

    Elliott & Thompson 2016; US$ 9.99

    Summer is a season of richness: gold against blue; sun dazzle on water; sweet fragrance, and the sound of insects, filling the air. We feel the sand between our toes, or the grass beneath our feet. In these long, warm days, languid and sensual, we reconnect with the natural world, revelling in light and scent and colour once more. Capturing the high... more...

  • Autumnby Melissa Harrison

    Elliott & Thompson 2016; US$ 9.99

    Autumn is a time of transformation. Crisp, clear days mark summer?s close and usher in a new season with its rich scents and vivid palette, leaves flaming red and gold by day, bonfires and fireworks lighting up the lengthening nights. There is abundance, as humans and animals make stores for the winter; and there is decay, which gives rise to the next... more...

    Winter is a withdrawal: quiet and dark and cold. But in the dim light frost shimmers, stars twinkle and hearths blaze as we come together to keep out the chill.

  • The Big Yearby Mark Obmascik

    Atria Books 2008; US$ 15.00

    Every year on January 1, a quirky crowd of adventurers storms out across North America for a spectacularly competitive event called a Big Year -- a grand, grueling, expensive, and occasionally vicious, "extreme" 365-day marathon of birdwatching. For three men in particular, 1998 would be a whirlwind, a winner-takes-nothing battle for a new North... more...
