Into the Tangled Bank: In Which Our Author Ventures Outdoors to Consider the British in Nature

by Lev Parikian - £14.99  Elliott & Thompson Limited (2020)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781783965069 | ISBN 10: 1783965061

Lev Parikian is on a journey to discover the quirks, habits and foibles of how the British experience nature. Open a window, hear the birds calling and join him.
 
It’s often said that the British are a nation of nature lovers; but what does that really mean?
 
Lev Parikian sets out to explore the many, and particular, ways that he, and we, experience the natural world – beginning face down on the pavement outside his home, then moving outwards to garden to wildlife reserve and as far afield as the dark hills of Skye. He visits the haunts of famous nature lovers – reaching back to the likes of Charles Darwin, Etta Lemon, Gavin Maxwell, John Clare and Emma Turner – to examine their insatiable curiosity and follow in their footsteps.
 
And everywhere he meets not only nature, but nature lovers of all varieties: ramblers, dog-walkers, photographers; kite-flyers, den-builders, grass-loungers; beginners, specialists, all-rounders; or just people out for a stroll in the sun.
 
Warm, humorous and full of telling detail, Into the Tangled Bank celebrates our collective relationship with the natural world and what it might mean to be a nature lover in Britain today.
