The very best of British and Irish nature writing selected by the natural history writer Patrick Barkham.

About the Author

Patrick Barkham lives in Norfolk. He writes for the Guardian, reporting on everything from technology to children's books and their relationship with the natural world. Outside of journalism, Barkham is one of a generation of British authors who have revitalised British nature writing. His first book, The Butterfly Isles, was shortlisted for the Ondaatje prize, and his next book, Badgerlands, was hailed by Chris Packham as 'a must read for all Britain's naturalists'.
