Still Water: The Deep Life of the Pond – John Lewis-Stempel
John Lewis-Stempel has twice previously been awarded the Wainwright price for nature writing and in this new title he turns his eye to the pond. That area of water that is both humble and valuable. The “moorhen’s reedy home, the frog’s ancient breeding place, the kill zone of the beautiful dragonfly. More than a hundred rare and threatened fauna and flora depend on it.”
He tells the seasonal story of the wild animals and plants that live in and around the pond and through these inhabitants and neighbours sounds an alarm call for this precious but overlooked habitat.
