Returning to nature

Gabi Martínez (Spain) became an apprentice shepherd in wintertime in the wilds of Extremadura in order to experience a way of life that his mother grew up with. There he lived in a hut without heating or running water, caring for over 400 sheep. Gabi Martínez has created an outstanding work of nature-writing in the pages of his most recent book, Un cambio de verdad (2020), a story of learning.
