Book Description:

Richard Mabey grew up on the Metropolitan line, the line whose existence created a powerful symbol of the English rural myth, the 'Metro-land'. Using his own family's history, his childhood and working life, he explores the power of nature as it occurs even on the fringes of our cities, from the scrubland under motorways to the newer sightings of Red Kites. How does nature assert itself, where the land turns from suburbia to woodland? And what power does it exert on those who live there?
