Moss is known as the living carpet but if you look really closely, it contains an irrepressible light. In 
Twelve Words for Moss, Elizabeth-Jane Burnett highlights this often forgotten but vital foundation of the plant world with her unique blend of poetry, nature writing and memoir. Making her way through wetlands from Somerset to Country Tyrone, Burnett discovers the hidden vibrancy of these overlooked spaces, renaming her favourite species of moss as she recovers from grieving her father's death, spurred on by the resilience and tenacity of her plant - and human - friends.
