Shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize 2017, The Running Hare - The Secret Life of Farmland.

Traditional ploughland is disappearing.  Seven cornfield flowers have become extinct in the last twenty years.  Once abundant the corn bunting and the lapwing are on the Red List, and the corncrake is all but extinct in England - and the hare is running for its life.

Written in exquisite prose, The Running Hare tells the story of the wild animals and plants that live in and under our ploughland.  It recalls an era before open-roofed factories and silent empty fields, but it is also the story of ploughland through the eyes of man who took on a field and husbanded it in a natural, traditional way, restoring its fertility and wildlife, bringing back the old farmland flowers and animals.  John Lewis-Stempel demonstrates that it is still possible to create a place where the hare can rest safe.
