Forced to accept that intensive farming on their land was unsustainable, she made a spectacular leap of faith and decided to step back and let nature take over. Isabella tells the story of the 'Knepp experiment' and what it reveals of the ways in which we might regain that wilder, richer country. It shows how rewilding works; that it has multiple benefits for the land; that it can generate economic activity and employment; how it can benefit both nature and us -and that all of this can happen astonishingly quickly.

Isabella Tree is an award-winning author, travel writer, and manager of the the Knepp Wildland Project, together with her husband Charlie. She is the author of several books, including The Living Godess and The Bird Man.
