About this book

In July 1969, Mark Edwards, lost on the edge of the Sahara, is rescued by a Tuareg nomad, who takes him to his people, makes a fire and produces a cassette player. Bob Dylan sings "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall". As Dylan piles image upon image, the idea comes to Edwards of illustrating each line of the song. In the years that follow, he travels to over 150 countries to photograph our headlong collision with nature.

"Hard Rain" is the result - an unforgettable collection of photographs illustrating Dylan's prophetic lyric. Images from Edwards' personal archive, plus contributions by Sebastiao Salgado, Chris Steele-Perkins and others, combine with the words of rock music's great, poetic writer to form the centrepiece of "Hard Rain". Award-winning author Lloyd Timberlake's brilliantly argued reproach of our lack of action in the face of global collapse, will inspire readers to participate in the complex debate about how we should best address the pressing issues of climate change, environmental degradation and world poverty.
