About this book

Combining history, natural history, folklore, food, and armchair travel, The Field Guide to Fields is a celebration of these rural treasures, painting a vivid picture of their unique histories and many facets. From the terraced paddies of Asia to the meadows of Europe, and from the paddocks of Australia to the wide-open prairies of the Great Plains, fields are an integral part of the modern landscape. In their myriad forms, they are the most familiar and well-tended part of the countryside -- and have been for millennia.They are places in which we work and play, tranquil spaces to be explored or simply admired from afar.

The text combines many aspects, including history, natural history, folklore, food, and armchair travel. It also includes practical feature spreads on subjects such as collecting and drying wild herbs, as well as identification guides to help you spot different types of flora and fauna. The book is beautifully illustrated by an anonymous artist.
