Synopsis

Richard Mabey, one of Britain's leading nature writers, looks in A Good Parcel of English Soil at the relationship between city and country, and how this brings out the power of nature - part of a series of twelve books tied to the twelve lines of the London Underground, as Tfl celebrates 150 years of the Tube with Penguin. Praise for Richard Mabey: "Radiant, tingle-making prose has earned Mabey literary prizes and a multitude of fans". (Daily Mail). "Richard Mabey is a man for all seasons, most regions and every kind of landscape". (Andrew Motion Financial Times). "Refreshing, droll, politically alert, occasionally self-mocking, he has the enviable ability both to write historical overview and also to slip into the woods like a dryad, bringing us back to the trees themselves, their colours and lights and textures". (Guardian). Richard Mabey has been described as 'Britain's greatest living nature writer' and is a frequent contributor to the BBC.

Richard Mabey is a naturalist and nature writer. Among his acclaimed books are Flora Britannica, Food for Free and Nature Cure. He is a frequent contributor on BBC radio and television.
