Descripció

From a 2018 Wainwright Prize shortlisted author , THE CIRCLING SKY is part childhood memoir , blended with exquisite nature observation , and the story of one man's journey over a year to one of the UK's key natural habitats, the New Forest of Hampshire

In the form of several journeys, beginning in January 2019, Neil Ansell returns for solitary walks to the New Forest in Hampshire , close to where he was born. With beautiful sightings and observations of birds, trees, butterflies, insects and landscape , this is also a reflective memoir on childhood , on the history of one of the most ancient and important natural habitats in the United Kingdom , and on the Gypsies who lived there for centuries - and were subsequently expelled to neighbouring cities. It is also part polemic on our collective and individual responsibility for the land and world in which we live, and how we care for it .

As Neil Ansell concludes so eloquently, 'Evolution has no choice in what it does, but we do, as a species, if not always as individuals'.
