Product description


"The lovely little book is lavishly illustrated with photographs, drawings and brief quotations from classic poems, while nonetheless driven by wide-ranging knowledge and engagement" --BBC Countryfile Magazine

"The botanist Stefan Buczacki, known to a wide public from Gardeners Question Time, has loved churchyards since as a child he visited family graves with his mother. His Earth to Earth: A natural history of churchyards looks at how church yards have become wild life oases, ad vises on enabling them to re main so, and suggests further reading. With many quotations, a fore word by Lord Harries, and more than 100 illustra tions, including both colour photos and Felicity Price-Smith s water colours, this hardback is attractively presented. Chapters themes include churchyards in the landscape; lichen; mammals, reptiles, and amphibians; and birds and small creatures." --Church Times

'...Cemetery of kisses, there is still fire in your tombs, still the fruited boughs burn, pecked at by bids.' - A Song of Dispair, Pablo Neruda, 1924 Quotations, such as the one above, evocatively pepper Earth to Earth. Full of longing and sadness they are accompanied by beautiful colour photographs and pen and ink drawings that are the real selling point of this book. It is unusual for a nature book to start with a foreword from a former Bishop, but when the subject matter is the animals and plants that can be found in churchyards, a blending of science and art seems appropriate." --The British Association of Nature Conservationists
