In Four Fields, his first book since the acclaimed The Running Sky, Tim Dee tells the story of four green fields spread around the world: from the fen field at the bottom of Tim’s Cambridgeshire garden, to a field in southern Zambia, a prairie in Little Bighorn, Montana, USA, and a grass meadow in the exclusion zone at Chernobyl, Ukraine. Tim scouts out these walkable, mappable but also secretive and mysterious wilds, uncovering their unique grasses, birds, and skies, as well as their natural and human histories. In this brilliant and beautiful book Dee makes us look anew at where we live and how.

This will be a magical evening exploring the hidden mysteries of the landscape we experience every day.
