The very best of British and Irish nature writing selected by the natural history writer Patrick Barkham.

Literature of the land shapes the way we think about a place and how we relate to it. The chosen pieces in this anthology of British and Irish nature writing celebrate the land in all its rich diversity, yet also touch on some of the issues facing the natural world today. Arranged in themes - such as woods, birds, childhood and future nature - here are extracts from much-loved classics alongside passages by some of our finest contemporary writers such as Robert Macfarlane and Helen Macdonald.
