  • It is a pleasure to be in the company of a man who is so attuned to his woody world ... He is good at sketching nature, fixing a vivid image in the mind's eye of a reader ... Lewis-Stempel has rightly won himself the reputation as being among our best nature writers ... The Wood is an entertaining, illuminating, well-turned read

    Robbie Millen, The Times
  • John Lewis-Stempel is the hottest nature writer around.

  • A heartfelt and evocative diary of a year among the trees…it’s his observation of the natural world – the sight, the sound, the smell of it – that is so memorable. He has a distinctively brisk, muscular style of writing that has a poetic intensity and concision.

  • Lyrical diary documenting a year in nature ... he’s brilliant on birds and their habits.

    Helen Brown, Daily Mail
  • Another triumph. Natural, translucent, full of half-glimpsed depths....just like a wood itself.
