Reviews of Beechcombings:

‘Like the woodland itself, Beechcombings operates on many levels… bursting out is a leaf-storm of philosophical musings, journeys of mind and body, reflections and anecdotes that imprint the tree on human culture.’ Sunday Times

‘Few writers can interweave personal insights, intellectual history and botany to create such a mesmerising and evocative account of man’s relationship to nature. House and Garden
