‘Today I think I’ll go for a walk and search for some gorse, or something similarly uncelebrated yet remarkable. Like Linnaeus, from time to time it does us good to get down on our knees before something truly great.’
Glimpses of Eden is a seasonally-arranged collection of the very best of novelist Jonathan Tulloch’s acclaimed nature column, which has run in The Tablet for more than ten years. In ninety-six evocative daily records of his explorations of the land, mostly within an hour’s bike ride from his North Yorkshire home, Tulloch captures snapshots of the wonders of the natural world. Here are eternal stories of resilience and beauty, hope and death, survival and renewal, a tapestry of miraculous creation to enrich our souls and deepen our understanding of life. Each reading is followed by a new reflection written for this volume.
