Publisher's Synopsis

A treasure trove of wintery nature tales from storytellers across the globe, bringing a little magic and wonder to every cold night.

Nature Tales for Wintery Nights is a treasure trove of tales by contemporary nature writers, indigenous voices and frost-bitten explorers, collated by Arctic traveller Nancy Campbell.

From the late days of autumn, through deepest cold, and towards the bright hope of Spring, Nancy Campbell, author of the bestselling Fifty Words for Snow, brings together a community of familiar names and dazzling new discoveries.

Here are Innuit legends, Beth Chatto’s garden and Tove Jansson’s ‘The Iceberg’; artists’ private letters, Anne Frank’s diary and fireside stories told by indigenous voices. Join the naturalist Linneaus travelling on horseback in Lapland, frost fairs on the Thames and witch-hazel harvesting in Connecticut, experience Alpine adventure, polar bird myths and courtship in the snow in classical Japan and Ancient Rome.

For fans of wintery bestsellers, including: Allie Esiri’s A Poem for Every Night of the Year; The Haunting Season: Ghostly Tales for Long Winter Nights and Lia Leendertz’s yearly Nature Almanacs.
