Hot off the presses, An Irish Nature Year, is a collection of 365 short, quirky and fabulously interesting articles from Jane Powers. This is Jane’s third book and is, by and large, a selection of her nature notes from The Times. She is the one who cannot pass a wildflower, insect, bird or whatever without stopping to look more closely, to find out what it is, where it came from, what it is doing there and looking into all the various connections with people and places.
As ever, Jane’s writing is a joy and Robert Vaughan’s line illustrations are the perfect accompaniment.
