Mountaineers, amblers, star-gazers, river-watchers, cavers, climbers, farmers, artists, sailors and ecologists - all these writers explore the elemental forces of the Welsh landscapes which have shaped their lives.
They all share a deep, personal relationship with nature and the gifts it offers us when we are awake enough to see. They share, too, a strong desire to protect and nuture a world that 'civilisation', alienated from nature and obsessed with commodity, is so hell-bent on destroying. Emissaries for the untamed world, these writers speak with passion, humour, respect, and, ultimately - hope.
"Wonderful essays! The old alliance of women and nature expresses itself here with insight, attention and delight."
