Naturally Africa!

An anthology of earth poems
Selected by Dan Wylie and Patricia Schonstein

ISBN 978-1-874915-33-1

Here the light from over a hundred poets reflects the hope and beauty that is at the heart of Africa, naturally.”

~ Nancy Richards. Journalist & Founder of Woman Zone

In this, the fifth of the Africa! anthologies, Dan Wylie and I collaborated to bring together a selection of poems to reveal the beauty, grandeur and exploitation of wild and urban landscapes. Poems are ‘touched’ by Africa, in the broadest sense. They focus on the environment while still engaging with emotions of love, loss and longing. These poems will make your heart both sing and sigh.
——————————————————————————————–
“Of all that there is to celebrate in hand-picked words, nothing could matter more than the state of nature – most especially on this continent where the power of the past and fragility of the future converge in a precarious present. Echoing creation itself, this biodiverse anthology covers the infinite African landscape – from epic wilderness to minute miracle, from startled bees to uncurled moons, from the ancient mandibles of termites to the rainless, shadeless waste of the future.
Across the ages poets have been trusted to notice, to care and offer light when things seem a little dark.
Here the light from over a hundred poets reflects the hope and beauty that is at the heart of Africa, naturally.”
~ Nancy Richards, Journalist & Founder of Woman Zone

“Naturally Africa! is a magnificent collection and a must-read for anyone who enjoys Africa’s wilderness.”

~ Colin Bell, The Last Elephants

“The wild places of Africa are my home. Soaking up these bold, insightful and caring poems is an inspiring way to fire up hope for a natural landscape under threat from so many sides.”

~ Ian Michler, Invent Africa
