'Britain's greatest living nature writer' (The Times) describes how he conquered clinical depression through his re-awakened love of nature.

About the Author

Richard Mabey is a prize-winning writer and botanist, described by The Times as 'Britain's greatest living nature writer'. Brought up in the Chilterns, he now lives in Norfolk where he and his partner, Polly, have created from scratch a vegetable garden, a Mediterranean garden, a pond garden and a wild garden with fields and hedgerows.

Highly praised for his poetic style and his challenging ideas, he is the author of FOOD FOR FREE, THE UNOFFICIAL COUNTRYSIDE, THE COMMON GROUND, FLORA BRITANNICA, NATURE CURE and, most recently, BEECHCOMBINGS.

Reviews

"A brilliant, candid and heartfelt memoir...The account of how he broke free of depression, reshaped his life and reconnected with the wild becomes nothing short of a manifesto for living...Mabey's particular vision, informed by a lifetime's reading and observation, is ultimately optimistic. It is also what makes his voice so appealing amid all the froth and flam of the eco-debate" -- Philip Marsden * Sunday Times *
"A book of which only he could have written a single page...marvellously observed, deeply felt from sentence to sentence. The writing is exquisite" -- David Sexton, * Evening Standard *
"Subtle, devotional, poetic" * Observer *
"Rich, invigorating and deeply restorative" * Irish Times *
"Nature Cure moves between the nervous breakdown of an individual and the madness of the modern world with a prescience akin to that of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land" -- Jonathan Bate * Guardian *
"Mabey is a radical, inheritor of an old English tradition...The core of the book is his exploration of his new landscape. It feels a privilege to share it, watching him unpick the layers of watery Norfolk, with dazzling skill and the warmest of hearts, as his troubled mind heals" -- Michael McCarthy * Independent *
"Written in the radiant, tingle-making prose that has earned Mabey literary prizes and a multitude of fans... both a wake-up call and an example of how the love of nature can electrify and heal the imagination." -- Val Hennessy * Daily Mail *
"An inspiring book" -- Nicholas Bagnall * Sunday Telegraph *
"Britain's greatest living nature writer" * The Times *
