Everybody Needs Beauty is a tender but rigorous corrective to the stories we are sold about nature, wellness and our planet. Walton's prose is inviting, personal, but uncompromising: she examines who profits, and who loses, in our rush to outsource wellness to an unwell planet. Beautiful, provoking and genuinely revolutionary, Walton offers us a way forward - a call to action that opens up the radical potential that both we, and our world, house within us. A book that will change the way you see the world
*Dr Alice Tarbuck, author of A SPELL IN THE WILD*

Beauty can seem in short supply these days. Samantha Walton punctures insipid nature cure myths and shows that not only do we all need beauty, but that it’s available to everyone. Essential reading for our trammelled, troubled times
*David Farrier, author of FOOTPRINTS*

Impeccably researched. Just a few pages in and I was already analysing my own engagement with the natural world. Everybody Needs Beauty is a call to us all to find a place within the simplicity and complexity of nature
*Lara Maiklem, bestselling author of MUDLARKING*

Beautifully written, intimate and intellectually fascinating

An account of the different ways in which people have sought and continue to seek healing in nature . . . Everybody Needs Beauty builds to the conclusion that it is not the experience of being in nature that makes us feel better, but that the soul is bolstered by a sense of the self’s complicity, presence and ability to provide care
