"A beautiful reimagining of Isabella Tree’s revolutionary and bestselling book WILDING, illustrated with lino prints and watercolours from Angela Harding
This new edition introduces the benefits of rewilding to a younger audience whilst appealing to fans of Isabella Tree and Angela Harding. The book encourages the reader of all ages to slow down and observe the natural world around them, and start to understand the connections between species and habitats.
With maps, timelines and rewilding activities for the reader to do at home - from growing pollinator-friendly flowers on your windowsill to creating an animal superhighway in the back gardens on your street. WILDING tells the story of Isabella Tree and Charlie Burrell’s trail-blazing and influential rewilding experiment at their Knepp estate, explaining what happens when you stop intensive farming and hand the land back to nature. It highlights Knepp’s ecological success stories such as the reintroduction of storks to mainland Britain for the first time in 600 years and the spontaneous return of the large tortoiseshell butterfly, which had been officially extinct in Britain for half a century.
Angela Harding has a unique ability to capture and celebrate the glory of the British countryside with her iconic style and signature textures. Her sumptuous colour palette, drawn from nature, brings her artist's view of Knepp to life in lino prints and watercolours based on observational drawing done on three visits to Knepp across the seasons."
