“Our connection to the world is always two things at once: instinctive and augmented.”
An absolutely beautiful book, about the place between our cities and the wild, known as the edge-land. It’s a place mostly forgotten, but one if you choose to, will ease you back into the rhythms of nature, and bring you closer to the wildlife that walk through it everyday. A deeply personal, poetic book about the wild natural places that live beside us, there is no need to hike into wilderness’ or climb mountains to find what is right on our doorstep. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
