5x15 welcomes the award-winning author Isabella Tree to discuss her 'deep, dazzling and inspirational' guide to rewilding, live in London.

Isabella Tree

Isabella Tree is an award-winning author and travel writer, and lives with her husband, the conservationist Charlie Burrell, in the middle of a pioneering rewilding project in West Sussex. She is author of five non-fiction books. Her book Wilding: The Return of Nature to a British Farm, won the 2019 Richard Jefferies prize for nature writing and was one of the Smithsonian’s top ten science books for 2018. Managed with minimal human intervention, and with herds of free-roaming animals driving the creation of new habitats, Isabella and Charlie's rewilded land is now heaving with life. Her first children's book, When We Went Wild, was published in 2021, and her next book, The Book of Wilding, a blueprint for for how to rewild the world around us, will be published by Bloomsbury in May 2023.
