About this book

For Yvette Verner, there is nothing to compare with the unspoiled beauty of an ancient meadow on a hot summer's day. Here she shares her passion for English meadows with gentle humour and wonderful lyrical prose, drawing you into the spirit of these special places, and showing you what flora and fauna to look out for. Through evocative descriptions of different types of meadow and the activities surrounding them, "English Meadows" gives a detailed picture of country ways of life going back to Medieval times, including: farming, buildings, tools, crafts, traditions, wildlife and a list of national meadow reserves. Drawing on personal experience of managing her own meadow, the author discusses the importance of meadows to wildlife today, and the vital nature of the conservation work that is carried out in preserving them.
