Even in the brick and concrete heart of our cities, nature finds a way.
Birds and mammals, insects, plants and trees - they all manage to thrive
in the urban jungle, and Bob Gilbert is their champion and their
chronicler. He explores the hidden wildlife of the inner city and its
edgelands, finding unexpected beauty in the cracks and crannies, and
uncovering the deep and essential relationship that exists between
people and nature when they are bound together in such close proximity.
Beginning from Poplar, the East End area in which he lives, Bob explores, in particular, our relationship with the trees that have helped shape London; from the original wildwood through to the street trees of today. He draws from history and natural history, poetry and painting, myth and magic, and a great deal of walking, observing and listening.
