From the publisher

A BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week 'Magnificent' Guardian 'Remarkable ... A compact classic!' Bill McKibben 'I learned something new - and found something amazing - on every page' Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See Fens, bogs, swamps and marine estuaries are the earth's most desirable and dependable resources. Here, Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Proulx brings her witness and research to the vitally important role they play in preserving the environment, and their systemic destruction in the pursuit of profit. Travelling from the fens of sixteenth-century England to America's Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, Fen, Bog and Swamp is both a revelatory history and an urgent plea for wetland reclamation, from one of our greatest prose stylists. 'A rousing call to action' Esquire 'Sparklingly furious ... it has a profoundly positive message' Richard Mabey, Telegraph 'This haunting tribute ... is a pleasure to read' Financial Times
