Author of Wilding, Isabella Tree, shares her five favourite books about nature. Wilding- the story of the rewilding project which brought nature back to the Knepp estate- publishes in hardback and ebook on 3rd May.
It’s hard to read books about nature these days without spiralling into despair and tossing them aside for the comfort of an Agatha Christie or P. G. Wodehouse. So my favourites are, fundamentally, a damn good read. Their warnings about the state of our planet – for they have to be there - are balanced by the beauty of the prose and a good measure of positive thinking, or at least some glimmer of hope for the future.
