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

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 at Knepp in Sussex. It is inspired by the requests they receive from people wanting to learn how to rewild everything from unprofitable farms, landed estates and rivers, to ponds, allotments, churchyards, urban parks, gardens, window boxes and public spaces.. The Book of Wilding has the answers.

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

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
