Guy Shrubsole, formerly a campaigner and an investigator for Friends of the Earth, has written widely for publications including the Guardian and New Statesman. His previous book, Who Owns England?, was an instant Sunday Times bestseller. Described by Robert Macfarlane as “a formidable, brave and important book,” it exposed the history of how England’s elite came to own our land, and laid out an inspiring manifesto for how to open up our countryside once more.
Now, he joins Toppings in the bookshop for his new book The Lost Rainforests of Britain, a mesmerising chronicle that will transform the British landscape as you know it.
A beautifully spun detective story, The Lost Rainforests of Britain is an unforgettable chronicle of our land – its past, present and future – as we have never before encountered it.
