Mark Cocker and Tim Dee – The Place of Nature
Two of the country’s most celebrated naturalists examine the state of the relationship between people and the natural world. Radical, provocative and original, Mark Cocker’s Our Place: Can We Save Britain’s Wildlife Before it is Too Late? tackles some of the central issues of our time and tries to map out how this overcrowded island of ours could be a place fit not just for human occupants but also for its billions of wild citizens. As editor of Ground Work: Writings on People and Places, Tim Dee has curated an essential collection of autobiographical essays from distinguished writers that explore the complex and increasingly troubled relationship between the human and natural. With essays from authors including Alexandra Harris and Helen Macdonald, Ground Work is set to become a key document for understanding the age that has come to be known as the Anthropocene.
