About this book

In this colourful journal, writer-illustrator Barbara Bash has re-created her chronicles of meditation and contemplative wandering during a series of solitary country retreats. Combining journal notes in calligraphy watercolour-and-pencil drawings, she captures exquisite moments of magic in the natural environment: a dragonfly's brief pause, a surprised deer in tall grass, a lumbering skunk's visit, the woods at twilight.

Nature lovers, gardeners, and anyone who enjoys solitary country walks will recognise in Barbara a kindred spirit and will find hours of pleasure in the pages of True Nature.
