Wilding — Isabella Tree
I absolutely loved this book.
Knepp Estate is just south of Horsham in England. Wilding tells the story of the rewilding of Knepp, how rewilding works and it’s benefits. At the same time, it is a lovely memoir of the journey and of life on the farm as it transformed, with beautiful details about the wildlife that was introduced or returned.
Knepp is now somewhere I plan to visit one of these days and I have been keeping an eye on their progress, with white storks nesting and breeding successfully there for the first time in 600 years being one of 2020’s highlights.
Recommended to anyone interested in nature or rewilding. 5/5
