words for the wild


“This small patch of green in Hampshire represents so much more than a simple field of cows and, in this anthology, a range of terrific writers from all over the world are raising their voices to protect the environment for future generations. I’m impressed and moved.” 

Alison MacLeod

“Words for the Wild’s anthology is an exquisite walk on the wild side. These beautiful poems take us from mountain peaks to the sea shore and are the perfect gift for any wildlife enthusiast. A reminder not to take our natural treasures for granted.”
