Beechcombings Author: Format: Hardback First Published: Published By: Little Toller Books Language: English ISBN: 9781908213945 Categories: , , , , ,

In 1987 the Great Storm that ravaged southern England felled millions of trees, and prompted a reappraisal of the arboreal in our lives. In Beechcomings Richard Mabey set out to uncover our relationship with trees, and specifically the beech, their significance in nature and meaning in folklore.

First published in 2007 this book was widely praised and described by Kathleen Jamie in the Guardian as ‘Refreshing, droll, politically alert, occasionally self-mocking, he has the enviable ability both to write historical overview and also to slip into the woods like a dryad, bringing us back to the trees themselves.’

This new edition forms part of the Richard Mabey Library, published to mark the author’s 80th birthday, and includes a cover by the artist Michael Kirkman.
