Emma Mitchell’s Wild Remedy

Emma Mitchell’s richly illustrated and evocative diary – as seen on the BBC’s Springwatch – records her nature finds over the course of a year and shows how being in the wild benefits our mental and physical wellbeing. Written with Emma’s characteristic wit and frankness, this is a truly unique book for anyone who has ever felt drawn to nature and wondered about its influence over us.

About The Wild Remedy:

In Emma’s hand-illustrated diary, she takes us with her as she follows the paths and trails around her cottage and further afield, sharing her nature finds and tracking the lives of local flora and fauna over the course of a year. Reflecting on how these encounters impact her mood, Emma’s moving and candid account of her own struggles is a powerful testament to how reconnecting with nature may offer some answers to today’s mental health epidemic. While charting her own seasonal highs and lows, she also explains the science behind such changes, calling on new research into such areas as forest bathing and the ways in which our bodies and minds respond to plants and wildlife when we venture outdoors.

Written with Emma’s characteristic wit and frankness, and filled with her beautiful drawings, paintings and photography, this is a truly unique book for anyone who has ever felt drawn to nature and wondered about its influence over us.
