Reviews

John Wright writes as though he's talking directly to you, a good friend in the same room. His harvest of fascinating information is worn lightly, with funny, whimsical observations... this wonderful book should be well-thumbed by anyone who is interested in the natural world. * BBC Countryfile * A hugely useful, well-illustrated and often funny book * The Times * He writes so engagingly that it's hard to imagine that actual foraging can be more attractive than reading his accounts of it. ...the splendour of his book, which is a treasure. It is beautifully produced, designed and illustrated. -- John Carey * The Sunday Times * Praise for A Natural History of the Hedgerow: A beautifully presented field guide. -- Robbie Millen * The Times * This illustrated survey is historically detailed, enriched by the author's deep knowledge of British landscapes and natural history. * Guardian * A true labour of love spiced with a fine dry humour... [not] just a delightful one-off read, but an invaluable work of reference that will remain on my bookshelves for good. -- Christopher Hart * The Sunday Times * Under his expert guidance foraging just sounds like a gas, a kind of foody treasure hunt with a bracing hint of Russian roulette. John's writing is knowledgeable, and no less mischievous for its lyricism. -- Niki Segnit author of * The Flavour Thesaurus *
