Home Country is a truly modern country book. It has no truck with nostalgia, pessimism or cliche'd views of the countryside as a tranquil escape. In Richard Mabey's Home country, nature is rowdy, cosmopolitan and full of hope; and in his absorbing account of bringing a Chiltern wood back to life is a vision of a world where humans are not masters or even stewards of nature but its partner. The D/w shows light shelf-wear with rippling along the top, and the end-flaps have light foxing.
