There was also Booker Prize-winning and celebrated Canadian writer and poet Margaret Atwood. Margaret Atwood is a winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the Prince of Asturias Award for Literature as well as the Booker Prize (many times) and the Governor General’s Award. Animals and the surroundings feature in many of her books, particularly her speculative fiction, which reflects a strong take on environmental issues. Many of her latest works (e.g., Oryx, and Crake, Year of the Flood, MaddAddam) are eco-fiction and could be considered environment fiction. Atwood and partner, novelist Graeme Gibson, will be the joint honorary presidents of the Rare Bird Club within BirdLife International.

Atwood’s very popular graphic book Angel Catbird reflects an environmental level of sensitivity to the balance between animals and humans and their household pets in urban configurations. Atwood’s choice for 2016 books originated from her energetic, astute, and compassionate environmentalism. Suggesting that lots of of her ‘The Year in Reading’ co-readers would stress fiction, history, and politics, Atwood chose her books from a still-neglected sector “instead. All hail, elemental spirits! You’re making a comeback!

“Water Is…: THIS IS of Water” (Pixl Press) by Nina Munteanu. “We can’t live without it, so we have to start respecting it maybe,” says Atwood. “This beautifully designed book by a limnologist looks at drinking water from 12 different perspectives, from movement and life and vibration to beauty and prayer.” Water is emerging among the single most significant resources of THE WORLD. Scarce in some areas Already, it is among the most new “gold” to be bought, traded, coveted, cherished, hoarded, and abused worldwide. It really is currently exchanged on the Stock Exchange…Some see water as an item like everything else that can make sure they are rich; they shall claim it as their own to market.

Yet it cannot be “owned” or kept. “The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, THE WAY THEY Communicate-Discoveries From a Secret World” (Greystone Books) by Peter Wohlleben. “Weeds: In Defense of Nature’s Most Unloved Plants” (Ecco) by Richard Mabey. Much better than you think “There,” says Atwood. “They hold the waste materials from areas of the global world set up, and you may eat some of them.” because the first human settlements 10 Ever,000 years back, weeds have dogged our footsteps.

They were there as the punishment of ‘thorns and thistles’ in Genesis and, two millennia later, as symbolic of Flanders Field. They are civilisations’ familiars, invading farmland and building-sites, flower-beds and war-zones throughout the world. Living so intimately with us Yet, they too have been a blessing. Weeds were the first crops, the first medicines.

Burdock was the inspiration for Velcro. Cow parsley is among the most stylish adornment of Spring weddings. Weaving the insights of botanists collectively, gardeners, poets, and artists along with his own life-long fascination, Richard Mabey examines how exactly we have attempted to specify them, clarify their persistence, and draw moral lessons from them.

One people’s weed is another’s crazy beauty. “Birds and folks” (Jonathan Cape) by Mark Cocker. “Vast, historical, contemporary, many-leveled,” says Atwood. “We’ve been inseparable from wild birds for millenniums. They’re essential to our imaginative life and our human history, and part of our economic realities.” Vast in both scale and scope, the book attracts upon Mark Cocker’s forty years of observing and thinking about birds.
