WILDING by Isabella Tree

by: Isabella Tree

With their family farm at Knepp pushing them to the brink of bankruptcy, Isabella Tree and her husband made a spectacular leap of faith: they decided to step back and let nature reclaim the land. In this book, Tree tells the remarkable story of how letting nature take control lead to Knepp becoming a hub for wildlife and biodiversity. The Knepp Project has become a leading light for conservation in the UK, demonstrating how letting nature take a driving seat can restore the land and wildlife and reverse the cataclysmic decline that has affected species across Britain in the past five decades. Personal and inspirational, Wilding is an astonishing account of the beauty and strength of nature, when it is given as much freedom as possible.
