I loved this book because of the hope it offers. In a little over 15 years Isabella Tree and her husband have managed to completely restore their once heavily chemically-controlled farm to wildlife, and live happily on that land, watching as extremely rare birds, insects and other creatures have made a return to Sussex. They are at the vanguard of a new way of living with the land, working with organisations including the National Trust to spread what they've learned and encourage others to do similar things - and it's working (in one of my recent newsletters I wrote about the farmer's collective in South-West England now trying to build the largest wildlife corridor in the UK). And exceptional read that won the Wainwright Prize with good reason. Everyone should make sure they have read this book. Read my review here.

 

This may not be the cheapest you can find this book, but every sale benefits indpenedent store The Bookshop in East Grinstead, a wonderful, beautiful, historical, haphazard place of books and coffee and cakes.

 

*PLEASE NOTE THAT BOOKS SHIP TO UK ONLY, IF YOU ORDER FROM OUTSIDE OF THE UK, I WILL HAVE TO CANCEL THE ORDER*
