Why subscribe?

I’m Hannah James, journalist, reader and nature-lover, and I send out this newsletter once a month on Friday afternoons - and if you subscribe, you get full access to the newsletter and website.

City living is rich and fulfilling, but I’m always on a quest to connect with nature. Other than getting out into whatever pockets of wilderness I can find, I mostly do this through books. Here’s where I read and review nature writing, building my own wild library - and hopefully yours, too.

Welcome! Let’s get a breath of fresh air.
