Welcome to The Wild Library. I’m Hannah James, a journalist, writer and editor wandering along the edges where nature and culture meet. Here’s where I read and review nature writing - let’s build a wild library together. Sign up now so you don’t miss an issue.
What happens when lone enraptured males are banished and women speak up about nature? I'm reading Katharine Norbury's Women on Nature.
I get grumpy about European seasons and read Richard Mabey's biography of Gilbert White
Reading The Salt Path and cooking through lockdown. Again.
I'm reading Catherine Raven's The Fox & I
Reading Christopher Neve's Unquiet Landscape
Reading Gretel Ehrlich's The Solace of Open Spaces
Reading Sarah Orne Jewett for the first time
See all
