Leopard Moon Rising

Laurence Rose travelled to India to hear first-hand accounts of indigenous people’s special relationships with the wildlife around them. The Warli people living in the urban forests of Mumbai and the Maldhari pastoralists of Gujarat live harmoniously alongside some of the allegedly most dangerous animals in the world.  In Mumbai, it is the leopard, living at the highest density of any urban big cat population.  In Gujarat’s Gir forest, it is the endangered Asiatic lion, which preys on the herdsmen’s prized buffalo. Rose delves into the values and practicalities that govern life among India’s big cats, discovering that even the tiger is revered as much as it is feared.

The Long Spring

Laurence Rose spent the spring of 2016 travelling from North Africa to the Arctic coast of North Norway. It was a unique exploration of nature, culture and conservation, and the vital sense of place that cements them together. Each place comes alive through vivid language and finely detailed observation, whether describing landscapes, people or the stunning wildlife of the continent of Europe.

Rose is excellent on the science that underpins our understanding of migration, but if he is an environmentalist by profession he is a musician by vocation. His ear for the sounds of birds is exceptional, while his ability to render their spring songs in precise language is among the foremost pleasures of the book.

No book has made me want to sprout wings and fly quite like Laurence Rose’s modern classic as it chronicles nature’s progress from winter slumber to verdant awakening in language so beautiful it sings.

As a detailed primer to the world above our heads, The Long Spring makes for an inspiring, eye-opening read.
