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.
I'm off to ancient Greece and 19th-century France, reading Selby Wynn Schwartz's After Sappho.
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
See all
