Description

Wildwood is about the element wood, as it exists in nature, in our souls, in our culture and our lives.

Meeting woodlanders of all kinds, he lives in shacks and cabins, travels in search of the wild apple groves of Kazakhstan, goes coppicing in Suffolk, swims beneath the walnut trees of the Haut-Languedoc, and hunts bush plums with Aboriginal women in the outback.

Roger Deakin’s unmatched exploration of our relationship with trees is autobiography, history, traveller’s tale and incisive work in natural history. It will take you into the heart of the woods, where we go ‘to grow, learn and change’.
