Beechcombings – Richard Mabey Library

‘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 has a new foreword by the author, and celebrates Richard Mabey’s place as our foremost nature writer.

£18, published 22 November 2021.
