Things That Are : Encounters with Plants, Stars and Animals Paperback / softback


This is a book about the universe which begins with swimming salmon and ends with the starry sky.

From the tiniest Earth dwellers to far-flung celestial bodies - considering everything from the similarity of gods to donkeys, to exploding stars and exploding sea cucumbers - Amy Leach rekindles our communion with the world.

This stunning debut will leave you with a deeper understanding of the universe and a greater sense of the magic that surrounds us.
