Written by the Guardian’s country diary writer Paul Evans, this is nature writing for the modern reader. It is a book both for those that live in the country and those that don’t, but experience nature every day through brownfield edge lands, transport corridors, urban greenspace, industrialised agriculture and fragments of ancient countryside.
Paul Evans is a nature writer, Guardian Country Diarist, poet, broadcaster, journalist and senior lecturer
in creative writing at Manchester Metropolitan University. He is the author of Field Notes from the Edge (a journey through Britain’s secrets wilds). He broadcasts regularly for Radio 4 nature programmes.
