About The Book
Moonlight, starlight, the ethereal glow of snow in winter … When you flick off a switch, other forms of light begin to reveal themselves.
Artificial light is everywhere. Not only is it damaging to humans and to wildlife, disrupting our natural rhythms, but it obliterates the subtler lights that have guided us for millennia. In this beautifully written exploration of the power of light, Matt Gaw ventures forth into darkness to find out exactly what we’re missing: walking by the light of the moon in Suffolk and under the scattered buckshot of starlight in Scotland; braving the darkest depths of Dartmoor; investigating the glare of 24/7 London and the suburban sprawl of Bury St Edmunds; and, finally, rediscovering a sense of the sublime on the Isle of Coll.
Under the Stars is an inspirational and immersive call to reconnect with the natural world, showing how we only need to step outside to find that, in darkness, the world lights up.
‘Enchanting, fascinating and written with real soul and sensitivity.’ — Rob Cowen, author of Common Ground
‘One of the most inspiring of our young nature writers, with a highly original journey into darkness and night’ — Stephen Moss, naturalist and author of The Robin: A Biography
‘Lyrical, warm, and suffused with the magic of the night’ — Patrick Barkham, author of The Butterfly Isles
‘A beautiful and — no other word is more apt — luminous love letter to the night sky.’ — Julian Hoffman, author of Irreplaceable
‘Passionately argued and perfectly crafted… Under the Stars is a timely and inspiring manifesto explaining how “by lighting our world sparingly, carefully…we can achieve something that would improve human health, protect wildlife, and help us to reconnect to the landscape and starscape at night”.’ — The Countryman
