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's place among our leading nature writers today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Field Notes from the Edge's magic lies partly in the sheer quality of the prose, partly in Evans' ability to loop together disparate threads[...] a profoundly satisfying read. -- Melissa Harrison * Financial Times *
A wonderfully original book...Evans has a superb eye, a fine ear for all kinds of speech, a love of droll reality and a lyrical sense of all life...a joy. -- Richard Kerridge, author of Cold Blood
The best account I know of how it goes with our wilds...[a] deeply loveable book -- Tim Dee, author of Four Fields
This lyrical prose makes the reader itch to get out into nature...Ultimately, Evans draws on the past to confront our present and ask what kind of future might be possible * Independent *
Paul Evans's important new book is the first indisputable classic of twenty-first-century nature writing...A masterpiece -- Jim Perrin, author of West
