A timely collection of the best British nature writing newly commissioned by one of the great authorities on the subject.
Tim Dee is a BBC radio producer making upwards of thirty programmes a year. His first book, The Running Sky, was published by Cape in 2009 and described his first five birdwatching decades. His latest book, Four Fields, described more deeply his ideas of the pastoral. He collaborated with the poet Simon Armitage on the anthology The Poetry of Birds.
"Tim Dee has brought together a wondrous array of talent for this life-affirming, often magical, anthology of nature writing." -- Katharine Norbury * Observer * "This superb anthology is a paean to spirit of place in dislocated times... And it is a trove." -- Barbara Kiser * Nature * "The anthology for me became a kind of pilgrimage: Canterbury Tales with Tim Dee leading his merry band to the new Common Ground site in Dorset... This collection about how to live lightly in the world and care deeply for its future... is overwhelmingly a message of hope." -- Sue Brooks * Caught by the River **Book of the Month** * "In Ground Work, Tim Dee has collated... An amazing vein of prose from some of the best nature and landscape writers around... A truly excellent book." -- Paul Cheney * Nudge * "Dee, who has the eyes of a birdwatcher, the ears of a radio producer and the soul of a poet, has gathered... this wonderful anthology." -- Michael Kerr * Daily Telegraph *
