The fascinating story of the rewilding of the Knepp Estate in West Sussex.

Accepting that intensive farming on the heavy clay of their land was economically unsustainable, author and travel writer Isabella Tree and her husband Charlie Burrell made a spectacular leap of faith: they started a pioneer re-wilding experiment. Their introduction of free-roaming cattle, ponies, pigs and deer – proxies of the animals that once roamed Britain - has resulted in extraordinary increases in wildlife numbers and diversity in little over a decade.

Isabella’s book Wilding is a gripping memoir, a fascinating account of the ecology of our countryside and, above all, an inspiring story of hope.
