Description:
As a boy, James Rebanks's grandfather taught him to work the land the old way. Their family farm in the Lake District hills was part of an ancient agricultural landscape: a patchwork of crops and meadows, of pastures grazed with livestock, and hedgerows teeming with wildlife. And yet, by the time James inherited the farm, it was barely recognisable. The men and women had vanished from the fields; the old stone barns had crumbled; the skies had emptied of birds and their wind-blown song. 'English Pastoral' is the story of an inheritance: one that affects us all. It tells of how rural landscapes around the world were brought close to collapse, and the age-old rhythms of work, weather, community and wild things were lost.

Reviews
'English Pastoral' is realistic, hopeful and conveys how reliant humans ultimately are on the land. It was intriguing to learn how and why we got to where we are now with that relationship, and what can be done/is being done to make reparations. (Recommended: 'Humankind: A Hopeful History' by Rutger Bregman)
