12 Birds to Save Your Life
This book is about coping with being human. It’s about how unexpected events smash and bash their way into our lives without permission. And how a love of the natural world – in particular birds- will help to raise you from these periodic depths.
Through twelve characterful birds, Charlie show us that there is joy to be found in the very smallest of events. From solitary skylarks to squabbling sparrows, he explores their place in our history and culture, and ultimately shows us just how life-changing his decision was to reconnect with the natural world all around him.
A lyrical and life-affirming book that teaches us as much about birds as it does ourselves - a balm for the soul * Raynor Winn, author of The Salt Path * Totally absorbing and completely engaging on so many levels... Charlie has opened my eyes to the constant joy of the sights and sounds of the birds that surround us. It is a book that really will save lives * Dr Richard Shepherd, author of Unnatural Causes *
