Synopsis

An eye-opening and urgent re-examination of nature in our cities, from the Sunday Times bestselling author.

‘Awe-inspiring… full of wonder, warning and hope’
ISABELLA TREE, author of Wilding

Our modern-day cities might seem to represent our separation from the vitality of the natural world. Yet, as Ben Wilson reveals in this invigorating re-examination of urban landscapes across the globe, nature has always been at the heart of the city.

Moving from Los Angeles and Delhi to Singapore and Amsterdam, Wilson explores how the bond between humans and nature has oscillated throughout history, and shows that – in a time of climate crisis – a new approach to rewilding may prove to be the city’s saviour.

‘Wilson soars like a falcon over global cities on five continents’
WASHINGTON POST

‘Novel and provocative’
