Between Us and Nature – A Reading Club #8: Ground Work – Writings on People and Places by Tim Dee

The Book is curated by Tim Dee “with an understanding that people and place are entangled at all levels”.

31 authors writing about the natural world today, such as Julia Blackburn or Helen MacDonald, explore “new and enduring cultural landscapes, in a celebration of local distinctiveness”.

Find out more in this review:

Through the selected passages, we will follow the idea of entanglement, exploring values of the natural world – including the anthropogenic ruins – and what it means to us.
