Book of the MonthThe Sacred Combe: A Search for Humanity's Heartland
A special place, a place of your own, a secret garden where life is somehow more alive than it is outside. The place is wilder and yet kinder, the creatures that live here are less tame but somehow more confiding. It's both magical and holy. Call it Eden, Narnia, the secret garden: the need for such a place is part of the human condition. I've sought it all my life, as Alice sought the locked-up garden after she had fallen down the rabbit-hole. The Enchanted Valley is where we understand the species we share the planet with, and where we also begin to understand the species we happen to be.The Sacred Combe represents natural history writing at its very best.Hardback £14.99 Buy Now
