Product description


Captivating... If this book was not as much a pleasure to write as it is to read, I'll eat my hat and gardening glove... Pavey s unassuming memoir celebrates the imperfections of rural life and the virtues of spontaneity... the non-bravura style makes this book attractively illustrated with Pavey s black-and-white sketches a winner' (Kate Kellaway Observer)

'A delightful account. with intriguing digressions into local history and culture. [Pavey] writes with warmth and spirit, and brings this space to life in all its detail of plants, trees and wildlife' (Penelope Lively)

'A lovely story - a super book' (Steve Yabsley BBC Radio Bristol and Somerset)

'Draws together childhood memories, local history. and literary penumbra' (Sunday Telegraph)

'A lyrical story of desire and determination, soft and gentle, warm and wise in a wicked world' (Camden New Journal)

'Practical and full of helpful advice which has been artfully baked-in throughout. If someone asks you what you'd like for Christmas or a birthday don't hesitate to reply, "A Wood of one's own"' (Woodlands.co.uk)

Book Description

The life story of putting down roots and finding solace in the healing power of trees
