Walking the Clough
Contribution to a Book
On Roots and Rootedness: Rural Writing Institute, Inaugural Anthology
Wandering through the wilds and fields from Exmoor to Australia, and featuring the voices of farmers, vets, explorers and other folk with muddy feet, this collection of non-fiction and poetry burrows into the heat of a swarm of bees, confronts death on the hillside and in the heart of the home, explores the imagination of nightingales, and asks what silence means when nature is always speaking.At a time when ecosystems and species face a global crisis, this work celebrates the power of roots and rootedness in the rich soil of family, memory, and community, revealing them as pathways to a life entwined with the natural world on which we all depend.
