Do you support #ClimateChange? Are you worried about the extinction or species or the degradation of our countryside? 

With the help of many Twitter friends, I've pulled together a list of stories steeped in nature, in which nature or the setting is a strong feature, a character sometimes.

I haven't read all of these, but they were recommended by all sorts of illustrious book-ish people on Twitter, so they've all gone onto may TBR (To Be Read) pile. You'll find a few of them already on The Bookshelf
