From ancient folklore to modern literature, the magic and mystery of the woods is embedded in our culture, posits Peter Fiennes in this unique homage. Forests offer us refuge, a place to play and to think, yet they are vulnerable to development, neglect, and climate change. And they are emptier—of flora and fauna, but also of people—than they have ever been. Immersing himself in the beauty of Britain's woodlands and the art and writing they have inspired, Fiennes explores our long relationship with forests and why so many have been lost, while offering suggestions on how we can reverse these destructive trends before it's too late to save them.
