Product description

Review

'Extraordinary... Written with a mixture of lyricism and quiet fury...Fiennes's book winningly combines autobiography, literary history and nature writing. It feels set to become a classic of the genre.'--Observer

'Steeped in poetry, science, folklore, history and magic, Fiennes is an eloquent, elegiac chronicler of copses, coppicing and the wildwood.'--Sunday Express

'Peter Fiennes writes with a piercingly urgent tone as he examines what he sees as the desperate state of our trees.'--BBC Wildlife

'Fascinating...This passionate book should inspire readers to plant more trees, support woodland campaigns and participate in active conservation.'--BBC Countryfile Magazine

'Lyrical, angry and often very funny. I loved it.'--Tom Holland

'Rich, personal, evocative, rousing.'--Robert Penn, author of Woods: A Celebration and The Man Who Made Things Out of Trees

'A passionate ramble through Britain's complicated relationship with its woodland.'--Daily Mail

'A joy of a book and a delight to read.'--The Great Outdoors

'A wonderful wander into the woods that explores our deep-rooted connections - cultural, historical and personal - with the trees.'--Rob Cowen, author of Common Ground

'A tender hymn to the trees, a manifesto for a woodland society, a contemporary gazette of ideas and attitudes radiating into the future like annual rings from the original pith... In this lyrical, informative, unashamedly arboreal propaganda, one man's walk in the woods can inspire a generation.'--Paul Evans, author of Field Notes from the Edge

Book Description

Dazzling, passionate nature writing from an important voice: a celebration of Britain's woods and forests and a rousing call to fight for them
