Largeprint (paperback) Our price: £19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

This is a fascinating exploration of the writings and personalities who have shaped our ideas about gardens and gardening. Gardening, more than most outdoor activities, has always attracted a cult of devotedly literate practitioners - people who like to dig, it appears, also like to write. For the most part they are not professional landscape designers or how-to horticulturalists, but rather hands-on gardeners who write with their own gardens in full-view. Ranging in time and place from France to modern-day New York City, they invite the listener into the natural world of soil and flowers.

The British Isles are an archipelago made up of two large islands and 6,289 smaller ones.

In this vividly observed book, Patrick Barkham explores some of the most beautiful landscapes in the British Isles. Meeting all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, from local legends to rare subspecies of vole, he seeks to discover what it is like to live on a small island, and what it means to be an islander.

Traditional ploughland is disappearing. Seven cornfield flowers have become extinct in the last twenty years. Once abundant, the corn bunting and the lapwing are on the Red List. The corncrake is all but extinct in England. And the hare is running for its life. Written in exquisite prose, The Running Hare tells the story of the animals and plants that live in and under our ploughland, from the linnet pecking at seeds to the ladybird that eats the aphids that eat the crop. It recalls an era before factories and silent, empty fields, recording the ongoing destruction of the unique, fragile, glorious ploughland that exists just down the village lane.
