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. 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.

'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

'Luke Wright gives an enthusiastic performance of naturalist Matt Gaw's celebration of his experiences with the night sky. Wright's fervent tone is a good match for the author's deconstruction of darkness, which venerates luminescent suns and stars, and urges an end to earth's light pollution. In poetic chapters, Gaw explores nighttime in six locations in the UK, including London, Suffolk, Scotland, and the Isle of Coll. In the section set in Coll, Wright's narration enlivens the author's vivid images. His voice makes listeners feel as if they are sitting with Gaw, his wife, and two children under a pitch-black sky, watching shooting stars and the bright spray of the Milky Way.'
