Fencing Paradise : The Uses and Abuses of Plants, Paperback / softback Book

Fencing Paradise : The Uses and Abuses of Plants Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In this remarkable journal of visits to Eden, Mabey transports his reader from Cornwall to the Mediterranean to the Tropics, from Old World to New, from present to personal memory, to new perspectives on our collective artistic and emotional past.

Sensuous and evocative, exquisitely written, his new book challenges the reader to look differently at the world, and our place in the landscape.

At the same time, Mabey is controversial in his views about what we mean by buzz words like 'renewable', or 'sustainable', and he is highly provocative in his final response to the Eden Project itself.
