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. 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 beautiful exploration of the power of light, Matt Gaw ventures forth into darkness to find out exactly what we're missing. 'Gaw finds wonder in the dark ... This is a powerful and valiant plea for us all to see that, unlike in science fiction, light isn't always good.' BBC Countryfile Magazine '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 'A beautiful and – no other word is more apt – luminous love letter to the night sky.' Julian Hoffman, author of Irreplaceable 'Enchanting, fascinating and written with real soul and sensitivity.' Rob Cowen, author of Common Ground 'Lyrical, warm, and suffused with the magic of the night.' Patrick Barkham, author of The Butterfly Isles
