9781870206969: In Her Element: Women and the Landscape-An Anthology

Twenty original voices explore their personal connections to the landscapes that shaped their lives; with nature serving as a healer and a teacher, this is a book about the unique bond with the natural world that grows over time spent in the company of wild things. In some stories, that bond is felt just for a moment: dolphins following a woman's sailing boat around the coast of Pembrokeshire; the arc of of red kite's tail feathers; a full moon over water; reaching the summit; the feeling of snow; or discovering stalactites underground. Others share their tales of a bond which has deepened over the years: walking a familiar mountain in all its seasons; a lifetime's work researching one of the rarest treasures, the Snowdon lily; rediscovering the land after a diagnosis of MS; memories of life by the sea on Anglesey; a love affair with climbing that started in childhood; and saying goodbye to the headland after 50 years of farming. This book brings a feminine perspective, with both new and established voices, to contemporary nature writing in Britain.
