Needwood takes a simple journey into the local countryside and pulls out of it, a universal story about our connection to nature and the landscape. Rooted in the long tradition of British nature writing, Needwood finds deep nature in the local landscape and is a celebration of the joy that can be extracted from ordinary things in the natural world. In his search, Miles Richardson finds something essential in a journey that demands increasingly lyrical prose as the natural year is rediscovered; the oak, the rook and blackbird’s song; the soft, effortless fascination of nature.
“In this poetically written book Miles Richardson brings our attention to the wonders and beauty of the natural world all around us. As we allow our senses to become absorbed by nature’s multi-textured, ever changing landscapes, we find a new peace and stillness in our being. Here is a journey to savour, be delighted by and inspired to go and see for oneself. A new type of mindfulness and presence in the world.” - Prof. Paul Gilbert, OBE – Author of The Compassionate Mind.
