5 Nature-Loving Must-Reads

We asked our team – what’s your favourite Nature read of the moment?

There was lots, as you can imagine, so we’ve created a shortlist of the most captivating reads that will have you itching for your next outdoor adventure and to expand your Earthly knowledge:


1. Wilder Journeys by Miriam Lancewood and Laurie King

These stories of profound encounters in Nature are not only great reads, but also incredibly motivating. It’s a great collection, some relatable, some almost unbelievable. By the end, it definitely had me planning my own next Wild Journey. 


2. Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer

A Native American scientist and professor shares her beautiful and important message of caring and being grateful for Nature; treating it as the gift it is with all the wisdom it carries, and our duty to preserve it.


3. The Complete Book of Flower Fairies by Cicely M. Barker

This one is specially for the kids (although who’s to say your inner child can’t enjoy it too!). This classic has some beautiful illustrations, poems and rhymes that help spark that magic that only Nature holds.


4. Entangled Life by Merlin Sheldrake

Exploring the vast Fungi world. All its mysteries, beauty, unique properties, relentlessness, and essential role in our world. This book helps deepen our understanding of the Earth and of ourselves.


5. How To Be a Bad Birdwatcher by Simon Barnes

The world of birdwatching can be intimidating, feeling like a domain for experts only. In response, Simon Barnes is full of self-deprecating wit, simplifying things to the basic pleasure of spending time with birds, and noticing and enjoying the glorious idiosyncrasies of different species.
