About this book
A talented nature writer meditates on the relationship between man and grass by looking at four fields in four different continents: a fen field at the bottom of his Cambridgeshire garden, a field in Southern Zambia, a prairie field in Little Bighorn USA, and a grass meadow in the exclusion zone at Chernobyl, Ukraine. Ideal for fans of "All The Wild Places" and "Waterlog".
Four fields spread around the world: their grasses, their hedges, their birds, their skies, and their natural and human histories. Four real fields - walkable, mappable, man-made, mowable and knowable, but also secretive, mysterious, wild, contested and changing. This book tells the story of four green fields.
