NATURE CURE

Synopsis

When Richard Mabey, Britain's foremost nature writer, fell into a severe depression, the natural world – which since childhood had been a source of joy and inspiration for him – became meaningless. Then, cared for by friends, he left the cosseting woods of the Chiltern hills for the open flatlands of Norfolk and started to write again. He found exhilaration in discovering a whole new landscape and gained fresh insights into our place in nature.
