Waterstones Says

The author of the bestselling Wilding delivers the definitive manual for bringing nature back and ameliorating the environmental crisis in this accessible and practical volume.

A blueprint for how to rewild the world around us.

The enormity of climate change and biodiversity loss can leave us feeling overwhelmed. How can an individual ever make a difference?

Isabella Tree and Charlie Burrell know firsthand how spectacularly nature can bounce back if you give it the chance. And what comes is not just wildlife in super-abundance, but solutions to the other environmental crises we face. The Book of Wilding is a handbook for how we can all help restore nature. It is ambitious, visionary and pragmatic.

The book has grown out of Isabella and Charlie's mission to help rewild Britain, Europe and the rest of the world by sharing knowledge from their pioneering project in Sussex. They receive droves of requests from individuals wanting to learn how to rewild gardens, allotments, churchyards; as well as community groups keen to influence local authorities to transform parks, roadside verges, riverbanks and other public spaces. The Book of Wilding has the answers.

Rewilding is a spectrum, and everyone is on it. Whether we have a garden or a window-box, a tree or some roadside verge, there is no space too small. It is learning how to contribute to a living landscape, the life-support system that will save our planet from calamity and deliver us a prosperous and sustainable future. Deeply researched and fully illustrated, this book explains how every one of us can play a part in rewilding our world. It is both practical guide and call to action. Above all, it is a manifesto of hope.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Rewilding is possibly the most important and empowering revolution to have evolved out of the conservation movement in the last hundred years. This book shares the knowledge and wisdom of that movement that we all need to better understand how we can all play our part in helping nature restore the planet - Benedict Cumberbatch

As the Roman poet Horace said, "Drive nature out with a pitchfork and she’ll come roaring back". That hopeful and demonstrably true observation lies behind the urgent optimism of this wonderful book. Rewilding works and it works fast: nature does reclaim with stunning speed and power. In The Book of Wilding Isabella Tree and Charlie Burrell take us on a fabulous adventure that demonstrates how almost every single one of us can contribute to the grand project of rewilding. Beauty, wonder and dazzling variety are the rewards for surprisingly small amounts of input and labour. Get this great guide and be inspired to go wilding yourself, no matter how small the patch of our earth you call your own - Stephen Fry

Five Years ago, Isabella Tree’s phenomenal book Wilding started a national conversation about restoring our flat-lining landscape. The Book of Wilding, co-authored with her husband Charlie Burrell, takes that conversation to the next level. It is both brilliantly readable and incredibly hard-working, offering all of us the opportunity to get involved. Let’s do it! - Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

This is a deep, dazzling and indispensable guide to the most important task of all: the restoration of the living planet - George Monbiot

The definitive wildlife survival manual ... Visions of paradise with all the practical advice to make it - Chris Packham

One of the wisest women alive, Isabella Tree has produced a handbook of hope. Her advice is invaluable; it reaches everyone who wants to make a better world out of the mess we humans have created. Buy it, read it, start changing things right now - Joanna Lumley

What an amazing book, a profound and passionate guide to returning the land to its natural state, a must, I think, for anyone who hopes for a sustainable future - Raynor Winn

A revolutionary and realistic recipe for restoring nature, nurturing new life and filling our homes, habitats and hearts with more wild joy - Patrick Barkham

Rewilding offers new hope for our beleaguered biodiversity. Buy this inspiring book and get rewilding! - Dave Goulson

This beautifully written and lavishly illustrated book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in rewilding, landscapes or indeed nature - Tristan Gooley

Protecting the ecosystems we have left is no longer enough. Given our long delays we must actively support the regeneration of our web of life. This brilliant book tells us how - Christiana Figueres, former Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change

Rewilding has a firm place in my heart and it's great to see it presented as a possibility for everyone, regardless of where they live. This book answered all my rewilding questions. I'm inspired to give my modest garden back to nature - Lara Maiklem, author of Mudlarking

[The Book of Wilding] is an eloquent yet hard-hitting synthesis of how a little helping hand can allow nature to heal itself, resulting in astounding outcomes for wildlife, while enriching our own lives in every conceivable way. With rare honesty and thoughtful reflections, the authors share their experiences and vision for greening farmscapes and cityscapes at every scale. This book is not merely important, it is epoch-making and world-building - Dr Gabriel Hemery, author of The New Sylva

All is not lost. Nature’s capacity to heal can still overcome our tendency to disrupt and destroy. This inspiring book shows how it can be done - Eric Schlosser, author of Command and Control

This beautiful book is both highly accessible and deeply practical and does a lot to break down any idea that wilding is only for those with vast wealth and large tracts of land. It should be compulsory reading for all Master Planners, landowners and gardeners as it will become a handbook for anyone seeking to create a wilder world. I love this book because it is at once humble and expansive, spiritual (with a small s) and resolutely practical. If you know anyone owning a window box or a country estate buy them this book, it will inspire them … A Bible for a new green enlightenment - Tim Smit, co-founder of the Eden Project

A game changer for sure. Informed and visionary. Easy to digest and persuasive. Just jolly well buy this book. It's a lifetime must that's essential - Derek Gow

Just in case you’re someone who thinks that ‘rewilding is an exotic, elite activity for a few rich landowners,’ The Book of Wilding will more than set you straight on that score! It’s something very different: a way of seeing, thinking, affirming, sharing and recrafting our relationship with the natural world - Sir Jonathon Porritt, Environmentalist

We know we need Nature back, and that’s why national laws and global agreements now say it must happen. The gap between ambition and practical action is, however, vast. In The Book of Wilding Isabella Tree and Charlie Burrell make a powerful case for action and with many examples show how we can achieve Nature’s recovery from the scale of entire landscapes to small gardens, and from wild wetlands to urban centres. I thoroughly recommend [The Book of Wilding] to anyone who wants to be part of the solution to fixing our depleted world - Dr Tony Juniper CBE, Environmentalist and Chair of Natural England

A gloriously produced and carefully researched educative guide to rewilding. Full of valuable advice for all who want to help restore nature -- whether you have a country estate or a window-box on an estate, this book will help you on your rewilding journey - Dr James Canton, author of The Oak Papers

What stands out from this beautiful book is the invitation for us, as humans, to become and create the wild at whatever scale we are able. As well as being full of practical examples of what we can do in our gardens, it highlights our birth-right and responsibility as a keystone species to enhance the natural world for all other species, as well as ourselves - Frances Tophill

When it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss, rewilding restores 'a sense of agency and ambition'. With their comprehensive and timely book, the authors are passing that agency onto others - Geographical

Whether you own a window box or run a community garden, this illustrated hardback will leave you inspired and hopeful - BBC Wildlife

A giant, handsome yet incredibly accessible doorstop of a tome, The Book of Wilding works as an A-Z guide to how and why to bring nature back to the land - Caitlin Moran
