|Praise for The Wood for the Trees:
“Excellent…wryly erudite…a fine playground for [Fortey’s] characteristic blend of wide-ranging curiosity, deft observation and deep research.”
--Richard Conniff, The Wall Street Journal
“Fascinating…vivid…striking…an immensely detailed portrait of the flora and fauna contained in four acres…Fortey creates an astounding portrait of multilayered life in one relatively restricted space, reviving the great tradition of natural history…[and] conveys unforgettably the staggering variety and abundance of the whole natural world.”
--Michael McCarthy, The New York Times Book Review
"[Fortey's] remarkable scientific knowledge, intense curiosity and love of nature mean entries erupt with the same richness and variety as the woods they describe. . . . Fortey's enthusiasm for his new wonderland is infectious and illuminating."
"Deeply knowledgable, enthusiastic. . . . Fortey illuminates its flora and fauna, history and geology with indisputable expertise."
"What [Fortey] shows in this remarkable book, always precise, often lyrical, sometimes prickly, however, is just how much can be learned, how much gained by sinking deep into one particular place."
--The Standard (UK)
"An eloquent, eccentric, and precise nature memoir."
