From the walnut tree at his Suffolk home, Roger Deakin embarks upon a quest that takes him through Britain, across Europe, to Central Asia and Australia, in search of what lies behind man's profound and enduring connection with wood and with trees. Meeting woodlanders of all kinds, he lives in shacks and cabins, builds hazel benders, and hunts bush-plums with aboriginal women.

At once autobiography, history, a traveller's tale and a work of natural history, Wildwood is a lyrical and fiercely intimate evocation of the spirit of trees- in nature, in our souls, in our culture, and in our lives.

Deakin changed the way that I look at trees and the natural world around me.
