"A profoundly satisfying read". (Financial Times). In Field Notes from the Edge, the acclaimed writer of the Guardian's 'Country Diary', Paul Evans, takes us on a journey through the in-between spaces of Nature - such as strandlines, mudflats, cliff tops and caves - where one wilderness is on the verge of becoming another and all things are possible.
Here, Evans searches out wildlife and plants to reveal a Nature that is inspiring yet intimidating; miraculous yet mundane; part sacred space, part wasteland.
It is here that we tread the edge between a fear of Nature's dangers and a love of Nature's beauty.
Combining a naturalist's eye for observation with a poet's ear for the lyrical, Field Notes from the Edge confirms Paul Evans' place among our leading nature writers today.
