About this book

Unusual and intriguing new book by Richard Mabey, one of the UK's foremost nature writers, under the Eden Project imprint.

From the publisher's announcement:

Richard Mabey's reflections upon the story of the Garden of Eden - evolved from the original creation myth and central to a range of cultures - take him from the Eden Project to the Mediterranean and the birth of agriculture, and in the steps of early explorers searching for an actual garden in the New World.

The Project has a place in a long tradition of attempts to gather the world's plants and recreate Eden. This brilliant and wide-ranging book of plant stores explores the irony that it is only by enclosing nature - fencing paradise - that we are able to find a vision of a better world.

Now available in paperback with a different subtitle.

Media reviews

'Britain's greatest living nature writer' - The Times 'Richard Mabey is a man for all seasons, most regions and every kind of landscape' - Andrew Motion, Financial Times 'Richard Mabey has the heart of a romantic poet, kept in order by a botanist's learning and an archivist's diligence' - Observer In its quiet way, Nature Cure moves between the nervous breakdown of an individual and the madness of the modern world with a prescience akin to that of TS Eliot's Waste Land - Guardian
