Description:

One of the Guardian's best nature books of 2020.

Shortlisted for the Richard Jefferies Society & White Horse Bookshop Literary Prize.

'Lovely: full of fascinating detail and anecdote, but the undertow of the virus moving in real time beneath its sunlit surface gives it a unique emotional heft.' -The Times

'A literary window into the wonderful wild world during lockdown... a charming book.' -Daily Mail

'An entrancing testament to nature's power to restore us to ourselves.' -Ruth Padel

Nature took on a new importance for many people when the coronavirus pandemic arrived, providing solace in a time of great anxiety - not least because the crisis struck at the beginning of spring, the season of light, growth, rebirth and renewal.

Three writers, close friends but living in widely separated, contrasting parts of the country, resolved to record their experiences of this extraordinary spring in intimate detail, to share with others their sense of the wonder, inspiration and delight the natural world can offer.

The Consolation of Nature is the story of what they discovered by literally walking out from their front doors.
