Michael McCarthy, one of Britain's leading writers on the environment, proposes this joy as a defence of a natural world which is ever more threatened, and which, he argues, is inadequately served by the two defences put forward hitherto: sustainable development and the recognition of ecosystem services. Drawing on a wealth of memorable experiences from a lifetime of watching and thinking about wildlife and natural landscapes, McCarthy presents a new way of looking at the world.

Professional reviews

"‘A great, rhapsodic, urgent book full of joy, grief, rage and love[…] A must-read.' HELEN MACDONALD, author of H is for Hawk ‘Impassioned, polemical and personal[…] At its heart, this is a book aiming to persuade those who are broadly sympathetic to think in a different way, and in that it is surely a success - and a joy.’ INDEPENDENT ‘Articulated beautifully[…] his quest to track down every British butterfly as a tribute to his dead mother brought me to tears.’ SUNDAY TIMES"
