From the howling winds of Skye to the fen-sucked fogs of East Anglia, explore the power and beauty of British weather in all its wild and stormy forms.

 ‘Beautifully written, wonderfully immersive and utterly life-affirming. This book glows with a rare light.’ Julian Hoffman All too often our weather is simply deemed as good (sunny) or bad (anything else), and our likelihood of venturing outside is governed by that simplistic judgement. But inclement weather can be beautiful, sublime, even fun. It transforms the light, textures and colours of a landscape and influences our mood and behaviour. It has inspired poets and artists, seeped into our language and folklore, and fundamentally shaped our way of life on these isles. It allows new worlds to emerge, shrouded in fog, splintered by ice and refreshed by rain.

 In In All Weathers Matt Gaw embarks on a series of walks across Britain – through rain, fog, wind, ice and snow – to look again at our most widely accessed experience of the natural world, exploring where our weather comes from, the ways it is changing, and how we can embrace it as a positive presence in our lives. It’s time to throw open the doors, window and soul to the inspiring wildness of weather.

 Praise for Under the Stars ‘Enchanting, fascinating and written with real soul and sensitivity.’ Rob Cowen, author of Common Ground ‘One of the most inspiring of our young nature writers, with a highly original journey into darkness and night.’ Stephen Moss, naturalist & author
