‘A profoundly satisfying read’ Financial Times

In Field Notes from the Edge, the acclaimed writer of the Guardian's 'Country Diary', Paul Evans, takes us on a journey through the in-between spaces of Nature – such as strandlines, mudflats, cliff tops and caves – where one wilderness is on the verge of becoming another and all things are possible.

Here, Evans searches out wildlife and plants to reveal a Nature that is inspiring yet intimidating; miraculous yet mundane; part sacred space, part wasteland. It is here that we tread the edge between a fear of Nature’s dangers and a love of Nature’s beauty.

Combining a naturalist’s eye for observation with a poet’s ear for the lyrical*, Field Notes from the Edge* confirms Paul Evans's place among our leading nature writers today.
