Mistletoe Winter is a collection of essays on our environment, nature and wildlife, covering biodiversity, habitat conservation, rewilding and individual species.
As in his companion volume, Cottongrass Summer, Roy Dennis balances his alarm at the crisis confronting the natural world with his own sense of optimism that new generations can make crucial changes for the future. His essays are informed by his considerable experience of working in nature to tackle species decline, degradation of habitats, the impact of farming practices, and to promote better stewardship of the land.
One of our most prominent advocates for our planet and its species, Roy Dennis writes with insight and originality. Mistletoe Winter will provide inspiration and ideas for everyone who cares about our planet and its species.
