    Emma Mitchell

    Product Code: WLDR
    Hardback
    Hand-picked favourites
    Emma Mitchell has suffered with depression for 25 years. When she moved to the edge of the Cambridgeshire Fens in 2003 and started rambling, she realised that walking in the countryside would lift her mood just as much as medicine or therapy.

    Photographing, collecting and drawing as she walked, this is a hand-illustrated diary of the paths and trails around Emma's cottage. She shares her nature finds and tracks the lives of local flora and fauna over the course of 12 months and candidly talks about how this has an impact on her mental health. She also discusses the awe-inspiring animals she's encountered on her rambles.

    Written with frankness and honesty - and filled with beautiful drawings, paintings and photography - this is a truly unique journal for anyone who has ever felt drawn to nature and considered its influence over us.
