Reviews

  • "A brilliant, candid and heartfelt memoir...The account of how he broke free of depression, reshaped his life and reconnected with the wild becomes nothing short of a manifesto for living...Mabey's particular vision, informed by a lifetime's reading and observation, is ultimately optimistic. It is also what makes his voice so appealing amid all the froth and flam of the eco-debate"

    Sunday Times
  • "A book of which only he could have written a single page...marvellously observed, deeply felt from sentence to sentence. The writing is exquisite"

    Evening Standard
  • "Subtle, devotional, poetic"

    Observer
  • "Rich, invigorating and deeply restorative"

    Irish Times
  • "Nature Cure moves between the nervous breakdown of an individual and the madness of the modern world with a prescience akin to that of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land"
