The collected writings from one of the nation's most celebrated nature writers.

CAUGHT BY THE RIVER

What is happening to nature?
What are we as a species doing about it?
What have we learned?


Wild Green Wonders paints a portrait of contemporary wildlife, bearing witness to the many changes imposed upon the planet and the challenges lying ahead for the future of nature.

From peregrine falcons nesting by the Thames to a conversation with Sir David Attenborough; from protests against the HS2 railway to an encounter with Britain's last lion tamer, this collection - drawn from twenty years' worth of Patrick Barkham's writing for the Guardian - forms a joyful, fascinating and enlightening chronicle of one of the nation's most celebrated nature writers.

'Outstanding nature journalism.' HORATIO CLARE
