About this book

A beautifully lyrical collection of essays on the natural world in Britain by the Guardian's country diary writer Paul Evans.

With a title taken from the 1940 Batsford book, this is nature writing for the modern reader. It is a book both for those that live in the country and those that don't, but experience nature every day through brownfield edge lands, transport corridors, urban greenspace, industrialised agriculture and fragments of ancient countryside. Evans weaves historical, cultural and literary references into his writing, ranging from T.S. Eliot to Bridget Riley, from Hieronymus Bosch to Napoleon.

The essays include The Weedling Wild, on the wildlife of the wasteland: ragwort, rosebay willowherb, giant hogweed and the cinnabar moth; Gardens of Light, about the creatures to be found under moonlight: pipistrelle bats, lacewings and orb-weaver spider; The Flow, with tales from the riverbank, estuaries and seas, including kingfisher, minnow, otter and heron. The Commons looks at meadowland with a human footprint, with the Adonis blue butterfly, horseshoe vetch, skylark, black knapweed and the six-belted clearwing moth. Other chapters look at the wildlife returned to Britain, such as wolves, wild boar and polecats, and finds nature in and around landscapes as varied as a domestic garden or a wild moor. How to See Nature ends with an alphabetical bestiary, an idiosyncratic selection of British wildlife based on the author's personal encounters.
