Described as 'Britain's greatest living nature writer', Richard Mabey has revealed his passion for the natural world in eloquent stories for BBC Wildlife Magazine. This volume features his favourite pieces and presents a fascinating and inspiring view of the changing natural landscape in which we live. Peppered throughout with references to the heritage of nature writing, and great writers from Richard Jefferies and John Clare to Roger Deakin and Robert MacFarlane, A Brush With Nature is part memoir, part nature journal, part social history, giving us a unique insight into a nature lover's reflections over a quarter of a century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A golden evocation of flora and fauna, places, people and perspectives." -- Susan Hill * The Lady *
"Getting hold of Brush With Nature in early March was like being given an unseasonable spell of warm weather in which everything in the natural world suddenly bursts into life ... Each [essay] feels like an outing, a trip with a supremely knowledgeable yet unpompous guide to somewhere new and fascinating." -- Michael McCarthy * The Independent *
"Mabey's head is filled with the sights and sounds of exploration but also with the background hum of politics, science, poetry and prose, social history and the experiences of other amateur and professional ramblers. In these essays, Mabey is generous and inclusive, the mark of a rounded writer and man." * The Times *
