This book, published to coincide with a retrospective of Stead's work at the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh and introduced with a foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales, aims to bring together all the different strands of Stead's career. A collection of memoirs, interviews, poems and essays, and lavishly illustrated in colour throughout, With the Grain is a fascinating and fitting memorial to an inspirational man whose deep love and understanding of nature touched every aspect of his life and shines through every chair, poem and pupil left behind.
