Nature Cure by Richard Mabey

Book Description

In the last year of the old millennium, Richard Mabey, Britain's foremost nature writer, fell into a severe depression. The natural world - which since childhood had been a source of joy and inspiration for him - became meaningless. Then, cared for by friends, he moved to East Anglia and he started to write again. Having left the cosseting woods of the Chiltern hills for the open flatlands of Norfolk, Richard Mabey found exhilaration in discovering a whole new landscape and gained fresh insights into our place in nature. Structured as intricately as a novel, a joy to read, truthful, exquisite and questing, Nature Cure is a book of hope, not just for individuals, but for our species.

Dreams of the Good Life by Richard Mabey Dreams of the Good Life, Paperback (March 2015)

Retraces author's life and her transformation from a post-office clerk who left school at fourteen to a sophisticated professional writer. Revealing how a formidable imagination can arise from the humblest of beginnings, this book paints a portrait of a working-class woman writer's struggle for creative expression.

Brush With Nature by Richard Mabey Brush With Nature, Paperback (July 2014)

Described as 'Britain's greatest living nature writer', the author has revealed his passion for the natural world in eloquent stories for BBC Wildlife Magazine. This title features his favourite pieces and presents a view of the changing natural landscape in which we live.

Ash and the Beech by Richard Mabey Ash and the Beech, Paperback (June 2013)

From ash die-back to the Great Storm of 1987, our much-loved woodlands seem to be under constant threat from a procession of natural challenges. The author reveals how we have appropriated and humanised trees, turning them into arboreal pets. She argues that respecting trees' independence may be the wisest response to their current crises.
