Beechcombings by Richard Mabey

Beechcombings by Richard Mabey


‘This is a book of range and ambition, bringing us back to the trees.’ Kathleen Jamie

Through the lens of just one species, the beech tree, Richard Mabey creates an urgent, passionate narrative for trees, weaving his own wood-words from his life, from youthful hunter-gatherer, romantic teenager to beechwood owner-manager.

At heart a plea to abandon the urge to dominate the wild, Beechcombings was first published in 2007; this new special, hardback edition with a new foreword by the author celebrates Richard Mabey’s place as our foremost nature writer.

Richard Mabey is the prize-winning author of over thirty books, including Food for Free, Flora Brittanica, Home Country, Nature Cure Gilbert White and The Unofficial Countryside. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and lives in Norfolk.
