'A profoundly satisfying read' Financial Times
In Field Notes from the Edge
, the acclaimed writer of the Guardian's
'Country Diary', Paul Evans, takes us on a journey through the in-between spaces of Nature - such as strandlines, mudflats, cliff tops and caves - where one wilderness is on the verge of becoming another and all things are possible.
Here, Evans searches out wildlife and plants to reveal a Nature that is inspiring yet intimidating; miraculous yet mundane; part sacred space, part wasteland. It is here that we tread the edge between a fear of Nature's dangers and a love of Nature's beauty.
Combining a naturalist's eye for observation with a poet's ear for the lyrical, Field Notes from the Edge
confirms Paul Evans's place among our leading nature writers today.
