Patrick Barkham - Wild Child - Coming Home to Nature

In Wild Child, part memoir, part polemic, Barkham argues for greater access to nature for all children.  He considers the lives his own children are leading : whether there was more diversity of nature in urban Norwich than in rural Norfolk.  He spends a year volunteering in his local Forest School, run by two pioneering teachers, watching children learn and play in a wilder environment. His book is an inspiration for all parents, grandparents and teachers. Barkham has also edited an Anthology of British and Irish Nature Writing – The Wild Isles -  from which he will also select entrancing and irresistible stories of the Wild to delight everyone.
