Winner of the Wainwright Prize for Nature Writing 2021

James Rebanks was taught by his grandfather to work the land the old way. Their family farm in the Lake District hills was a patch-work of crops and meadows, of pastures grazed with livestock, and hedgerows teeming with wildlife.

Yet by the time James inherited the farm that landscape had profoundly changed. English Pastoral tells of how the age-old rhythms of work, weather, community and wild things were lost. This elegy from the northern fells is also a song of hope, and of how, guided by the past, one farmer began to salvage a tiny corner of England that was now his, doing his best to restore the life that had vanished and to leave a legacy for the future.
