About this book

Working with Nature is the story of a life working in nature conservation, from the steamy Singapore Botanical Gardens, where the author grew up, to the desert badlands of Pakistan and guerrilla-haunted forests of Burundi. It is also a memoir of encounters with larger-than-life characters such as the elephant champion Richard Leakey, William Bunting, the gun-toting saviour of Yorkshire's peatlands, and the aristocratic gardener, Vita Sackville-West.

Jeremy Pursegove pioneered the adaptation of engineering projects to preserve nature and landscape, first in Britain and then around the world. His is the voice of reason showing why it's not a good idea to extract as many resources as possible, whether it's palm oil denuding the forests of Borneo, cottonfield irrigation draining the Aral Sea, or monocrops spreading across Britain. Purseglove's narrative ranges from cocoa farming in Ghana to the orchards of Kent and at each step he offers fresh insights and solutions.
