Ecologist Richard Nairn buys a small woodland and allows it to go back to nature. A fascinating account of a typical year in a native Irish forest, its moods and seasons and wildlife secrets. Wildwoods is an important and timely reminder to pay attention to what nature can teach us.

"Nairn has a good style of writing that comfortably combines the conversational with the educational"

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned a lot about woodlands in Ireland. The next time I take a walk in a wood, I will have a greater appreciation of the trees and the various animals, insects and plants that survive among and on them.
