Description :

In Kindred Nature, Barbara T. Gates highlights the contributions of Victorian and Edwardian women to the study, protection, and writing of nature. Recovering their works from the misrepresentation they often faced at the time of their composition, Gates discusses not just well-known women like Beatrix Potter but also others—scientists, writers, gardeners, and illustrators—who are little known today.

Some of these women discovered previously unknown species, others wrote and illustrated natural histories or animal stories, and still others educated women, the working classes, and children about recent scientific advances. A number of women also played pivotal roles in the defense of animal rights by protesting overhunting, vivisection, and habitat destruction, even as they demanded their own rights to vote, work, and enter universities.

Kindred Nature shows the enormous impact Victorian and Edwardian women had on the natural sciences and the environmental movement, and on our own attitudes toward nature and human nature.

Description :

In Nature's Kindred Spirits James McClintock shows how their mystical experiences with the wild led to dramatic conversions in their thinking and behavior.  By embracing the ecstasy of nature, they reject modern alienation and spiritual confusion.
    From Aldo Leopold, America’s most important conservationist and author of the classic A Sand County Almanac, to Pulitzer Prize winners Annie Dillard and Gary Snyder and defenders of the desert Joseph Wood Krutch and Edward Abbey, these writers share a common vision that harkens back to Henry David Thoreau and John Muir.  To nineteenth-century Romantic ideals, they add the authority of modern ecological science.  Collectively they have elevated nature’s importance in American culture, shaping the growth of the environmental movement and influencing American environmental policies.
    Widely admired among educated readers but relatively neglected by the literary establishment, these writers unite the experiential with the metaphysical, the ordinary with the sacred, the personal with the public, and the natural with the social.  Using ecology as a touchstone, McClintock further draws connections among science, politics, religion, and philosophy to create an enlightening overview of the work of these “kindred spirits.”

Part One – Jo-Jo Feather & The Fledgling Prince
Part Two – Jo-Jo Feather & the Prince of Crows

(Both parts are still available separately for Kindle at Amazon)


When The Creator sends an invitation, be honoured - When Nature calls you into battle against things evil and unnatural, be willing and resolute - When The Dark Demon himself hungers for both your lifeblood and your inner spirit, be afraid.

The natural world is about to end. All life on Earth is doomed. For as the corvid seers foretell, demonic forces are about to be irrevocably unleashed; ones that will bring about the final age of ice and darkness. The Long Dark Winter will be upon us. And yet, if this ancient prophecy is to be given full credence, there is still the merest glimmer of hope; a slim chance for salvation. For it is further fabulously foretold, that a human boy and a young crow are destined to come to the fore and make a stand. These two, Nature’s last and only hope.

Just a boy, a bird and a small, mixed troupe of equally brave and determined, yet somewhat oddball and eccentric creatures... Could the continued survival of all living things really be reliant upon such a motley bunch of animal Kindred Spirits?... Apparently so.

Jo-Jo Feather is just an ordinary lad with an extraordinary gift, and Barnaby just a rather scraggy, young crow. Yet the most damnable of all demons craves their destruction. For it too is very much aware of The Corvid Prophecy.

The fate of all life on Earth is soon to be decided - The Kindred Chronicles - The Corvid Prophecy - So it begins…

Part One – Jo-Jo Feather & The Demons of Blaggemire Manor -
will be available for Kindle 1st quarter 2015.
