Beechcombings – Richard Mabey Library

'This is a book of range and ambition, bringing us back to the trees.'

At heart a plea to abandon the urge to dominate the wild, Beechcombings was first published in 2007; this new special, hardback edition has a new foreword by the author, and celebrates Richard Mabey's place as our foremost nature writer. £18, published 22 November 2021.
