Award-winning author and travel writer Isabella Tree’s latest book, Wilding: Returning Nature to Our Farm (New York Review Books, 2019), tells the story of a daring wildlife experiment. By challenging conventional ideas about our past and present landscape, the author points the way to a wilder, richer future—a countryside that benefits farming, nature, and us.
Wilding: Returning Nature to Our Farm was voted one of the Smithsonian’s top 10 science books, and is one of Forbes’s top 10 books on climate, nature, and the environment.
