The Wild Isles

An Anthology of the Best of British and Irish Nature Writing

chosen by Patrick Barkham

This was a Christmas present to myself and it has been the book that I turn to when I am having breakfast before everyone else is awake or when I am home alone.  A collection of some of the finest nature writing from the UK and Ireland, from the well known such as Gilbert White and Isabella Tree to some new writers to me whose work I will be seeking out.
