Moving from scrappy London verges to ancient, rural Suffolk, This is much more than a diary and is  compiled from Melissa Harrison’s beloved Nature  Notebook column in The Times. It  maps her joyful engagement  with the natural world and demonstrates how we must first learn  to see, and then act to preserve, the beauty we have on our doorsteps – no matter where we live. Rural Suffolk is the  setting for the hit podcast which accompanies this book,  also called The Stubborn Light of Things. @M_Z_Harrison
