Further adventures of Nigel and Nell as Monty Don, the UK's favourite gardener and Sunday Times bestselling author of Nigel, looks at the relationships between dogs and humans and the incredible support dogs can provide for human health.

Dogs have always been central to Monty Don's life, and there have been many over the years, but it's fair to say that none has been quite as famous as Nigel. A star (some might say the star) of Gardeners' World, Nigel has a special place in the hearts of viewers.

Monty Don looks further at this special relationship that we have with our dogs and how they have played such a crucial role in his own life. Companions, healers, friends, offering no judgement - just love and loyalty. In this heart-warming memoir Monty celebrates that love and the enormous support Nigel and friends have given him.

Threads of Life

Clare Hunter
Authors:
Clare Hunter

A history of sewing and embroidery, told through the stories of the men and women, over centuries and across continents, who have used the language of sewing to make their voices heard, even in the most desperate of circumstances.From the political storytelling of the Bayeux tapestry's anonymous embroiderers and Mary, Queen of Scots' treasonous stitching, to the sewing of First World War soldiers suffering from PTSD and the banner-makers at Greenham Common, Threads of Life stretches from medieval France to 1980s America, from a Second World War POW camp in Singapore to a family attic in Scotland. It is as much about identity, protest, memory and politics as craft and artistry. In an eloquent blend of history and memoir with a unique understanding of craft, Clare Hunter's Threads of Life is an evocative and moving book about the need we all have to tell our story.
