The 2021 hardback is a rerelease in Little Toller's Richard Mabey Library.
During the early 1970s Richard Mabey explored crumbling city docks and overgrown bomb-sites, navigated inner city canals and car parks, and discovered there was scarcely a nook in our urban landscape incapable of supporting life. The Unofficial Countryside, one of Little Toller's bestsellers in this series, is a timely reminder of how nature flourishes against the odds, surviving in the most obscure and surprising places.
"an exciting re-discovery for me"
