‘Healing Nature’ featuring Diary of a Young Naturalist - Book Club
The book: We’ve never read anything before quite like Diary of a Young Naturalist.
Following a year in Dara McAnulty’s life – from spring equinox to spring equinox, from his 14th to 15th birthday – this book chronicles a young man’s passionate connection to wildlife.
As a child, Dara was diagnosed with autism and Asperger’s, and his condition is also closely connected to his writing and feelings for nature.
There is, he says, no “joy filter” when it comes to this love – and we think his sense of pure wonder leaps off the page.
We’ve certainly been inspired this month to follow in Dara’s footsteps – and immerse ourselves in nature as much as possible. We hope you will be too.
