Featured on BBC Radio 4 as Book of the Week, The Running Hare is the story of ploughland through the eyes of a 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 freely admits it was written “with some anger”, as the author contemplated the ravages modern agriculture has inflicted. The book is a mix of agricultural history, rural lore as well as drawing from folk songs and literature to paint a lyrical landscape.
