Thirteen Paces by Four: Backyard Biophilia and the Emerging Earth Ethic

By Joe Gray (m. 2000)

Thirteen Paces by Four Book Cover

Triggered by the Covid-19 lockdown, the author, a passionate conservationist, finds himself drawing inspiration from goings-on in the small back garden of his terraced suburban house, an outdoor space that he has measured at thirteen paces long by four paces wide. Contemplating what a love of nature really means and implies, the author weaves a narrative of interlinked ideas that are integral to humanity's positive cohabitation of Earth with the rest of life.
