Forests are among our most ancient, primal landscapes, and fairytales one of our earliest and most vital forms of storytelling. In this richly layered book, Sara Maitland travels the length of Britain, exploring woodlands from the New Forest to Galloway, through the changing seasons of a year. Each journey is paired with an enchanting retelling of an ancient fairytale, evoking the secrets and silence, the joys and terrors of the woods in a magical blend of nature writing and fiction.
