‘The best account I know of how it goes with our wilds’                                 Tim Dee author of Four Fields                         

 

‘The best of the best writers on nature’                                                

John Vidal The Guardian Environment Editor  

 

In ‘Field Notes From The Edge’, one of Britain’s foremost nature writers takes us on a journey through Britain’s hidden wilderness. Here, celebrated naturalist Paul Evans explores the gaps between one place, one state of mind, one truth and another.  This beautifully written book is a work of dark wonder, capturing our changing world and treading the narrow way between our love of Nature and fear of it.  From Shropshire’s Wenlock Edge, which he knows so well, Paul Evans looks at other kinds of ‘edge’ and the wild lives that inhabit them in ruins, strandlines, caves, heaths, islands, marshes, swarms, even bodies. From ice-age caves to ancient hedgerows, this is a celebration of things lost, overlooked or hiding in plain sight. 

 

 ‘...the first indisputable classic of twenty-first century nature-writing…’       Jim Perrin Nature writer & biographer author of West 

 

Best known as an author of The Guardian’s Country Diary column, Paul Evans is a naturalist, university lecturer, broadcaster of natural-history documentaries and award-winning dramas for Radio 4, and performance poet. He’s already acclaimed as one of Britain’s leading nature writers – the ‘John Clare of his generation’.  

 

'wonderfully original book...Evans has a superb eye, a fine ear for all kinds of speech, a love of droll reality and a lyrical sense of all life.

It is a Joy'  

Richard Kerridge Ecocritic and author of Cold Blood  

 

He writes for publications including BBC Wildlife, Geographical, The National Trust Magazine andCountry Living; and his work appears in many anthologies. In his time he has also been a grave digger, managed gardens for the National Trust,worked for Percy Thrower, been commissioned by a billionaire to collect samples of all the plants in eastern North America, fronted a Punk band and looked after botanical gardens in New York.  He has had his poetry set to music by an American folk group and even been the subject of an MA at a Belgian university. He lives with his family in Much Wenlock, Shropshire where he was born.      

 

'He made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end with his mastery of other unseen moments of life on earth, making 'the ginger streak' of a dormouse flash into focus or pulling me back into prehistory to dream with cave people'. 

Maggie Gee author of The White Family 

 

Fields  ‘Stunning, thoughtful and closely observed…the sort of writing that compels you to go outdoors and re-experience the world’                                          

Gerard Woodward author of I’ll Go to Bed at Noon
