Reviews

A beautifully presented field guide. -- Robbie Millen * Times *
A true labour of love spiced with a fine dry humour... a rich and spellbinding love letter to the great British hedgerow... [not] just a delightful one-off read, but an invaluable work of reference that will remain on my bookshelves for good. -- Christopher Hart * The Sunday Times *
This illustrated survey is historically detailed, enriched by the author's deep knowledge of British landscapes and natural history. * Guardian *
After reading this delightful book, you'll see those humble boundaries as living archives of our island story. * Daily Mail *
Fascinating... his book grows on me, like honeysuckle... shows a clean limb and a sense of humour... he does the hedgerow good. * Country Life *
Hugely enjoyable ... such a pleasure to read ... laced with humour and an abundance of first-hand knowledge. * BBC Countryfile *
Engaging... plants are described with tremendous knowledge and enthusiasm that can only come from someone who knows and loves them like old friends... [A] great educational tool - not to say fascinating read. * English Garden *
Wright covers a respectable amount of ground in this hybrid field guide... Often humorous and richly informative, this a perfect book for dipping into. * The Lady *
Praise for The Naming of the Shrew: Who would have thought that a book about Latin names could be quite so compelling! * Alan Titchmarsh *
Brims with verbal curiosities * Nature *
Nature writing at its best: insightful, entertaining and often very funny * British Wildlife *
Weird and wonderful * Sunday Telegraph *
Charming. * The Lady *
The pleasure of Wright's book is the contrast between the rigour required for giving names and the careless minds and mischievous humour of those who devise them. * The Times *
Fascinating and funny. * BBC Countrylife *
Erudite but whimsical ... a book as charming as it is wise. * Irish Examiner *
A great read. * Grow Your Own *
