Discover the healing power of nature through the captivating stories of twelve birds This book is about coping with being human. It's about how unexpected events smash and bash their way into our lives without permission. And how a love of the natural world - in particular birds- will help to raise you from these periodic depths.

Through twelve characterful birds, Charlie show us that there is joy to be found in the very smallest of events. From solitary skylarks to squabbling sparrows, he explores their place in our history and culture, and ultimately shows us just how life-changing his decision was to reconnect with the natural world all around him.

Charlie Corbett is a freelance writer, journalist and public speaker. He comes from a family of livestock and arable farmers and spent his childhood divided between farms on the North Wessex Downs and The Isle of Mull. Having studied history at the University of Edinburgh he turned away from his farming roots and spent the next 20 years reporting on business and finance from cities all over the world. But he remained, at heart, a country boy. He lives today at the foot of the Pewsey Downs in Wiltshire with his wife, two sons, and a field full of skylarks.

Charlie has opened my eyes to the constant joy of the sights and sounds of the birds that surround us. It is a book that really will save lives * Dr Richard Shepherd, author of Unnatural Causes * From dawn choruses to the first chiffchaff calls of spring, Charlie Corbett shows how the changing seasons can bring happy natural rhythms to times of hardship * National Geographic Traveller *
