Diary of a young Naturalist
written by Dara McAnulty
"There are unfurlings in the forest. Anemones and ferns are springing from patient earth, from dim and ancient spaces. Evensong is erupting and the airspace is once again crowded with music after then winter silence. Bluebells are on the cusp. Spring light and warmth are spreading across the mountains and into me. I have embraced the darkness but now this feeling of light is intoxicating, explosive and alive."
Diary of a young Naturalist chronicles the turning of Dara McAnulty's world, from spring to summer, autumn to winter, on his home patch, at school, in the wild and in his head. Evocative, raw and beautifully written, this very special book vividly explores the natural world from the perspective of an autistic teenager juggling homework, exams and friendships alongside his life as a conversationist and environmental activist.
