He lives in on a canal boat with no fixed address.'The countryside ought to be for everyone, and this beautiful, thoughtful companion can help us all start to forge paths into the forgotten corners of our green, pleasant and often inaccessible land' Catrina Davies, author of Homesick The Trespasser's Companion is a rallying cry for greater public access to nature and a gently seditious guide to how to get it: by trespassing. We are excluded from the majority of our land and waterways in England, but bestselling writer Nick Hayes shows how reclaiming our connection to nature would be better both for us, and for nature. By stepping over the fences that bar us from the countryside, by engaging more deeply with nature through craft, education, and citizen science, we can rediscover not only a land that has been hidden from us for too long, but also reignite our collective responsibility to protect it. Interwoven are testimonials from expert contributors - farmers and landworkers, activists and authors - each with deeply personal stories of what a connection to nature means for them. With exquisite woodcut illustrations throughout, this is both a love letter to our land and a call to action.

We will be all the better for it.The Trespasser's Companion is many things at once: it is a how-to guide; a spell book; a call to arms. Most urgently, though, it is a reimagining of how we might live, showing how we can share more equally in all that our land has to offer while caring for that land more ardentlyThe countryside ought to be for everyone, and this beautiful, thoughtful companion can help us all start to forge paths into the forgotten corners of our green, pleasant and often inaccessible land.PRAISE FOR THE BOOK OF TRESPASS 'Brilliant, passionate and political . . . The Book of Trespass will make you see landscapes differently' 'A remarkable and truly radical work, loaded with resonant truths'
