Framing Nature

conservation and culture


'Here we join this conservationist, composer and lyrical, erudite writer on field trips in search of fragile species . . . this is full of warnings and wonder and birdsong. We could despair, or we could heed Rose's call to reconnect with the living world around us.' Saga Magazine (Nov 2020)

'The success or failure of all conservation efforts depends on the connections that we form with the species or aspects of nature under consideration. That's the basic thrust of this excellent, highly readable book . . . Rose also has a knack of observing a whole landscape - while his focus may be on an individual species, his keen gaze also takes in all sorts of other details, making this a fascinating read for anyone with an interest in any aspect of the natural world.' Birdwatching Magazine (Book of the Month, November 2020)

Conservationist Laurence Rose spent two years exploring the cultural roots of our relationship with the rest of nature in order to map out its future. From the magnificent white-tailed eagles of Orkney and Mull to the fascinating world of ants and crickets on the southern heaths, he describes his encounters with wildlife in exquisite language and vivid detail.

This is a book about the complexity and vulnerability of nature, and the unexpected connections between people and wildlife. While his writing builds on decades of experience as a leading conservationist, Laurence's passion shines from every page. Unflinching in describing the long journey needed to rebuild a mutually-beneficial relationship with nature, ultimately it is a book about optimism and hope.
