April's award winning, The Lost Rainforests of Britain, is the extraordinary tale of Guy Shrubsole's quest to find Britain’s lost rainforests – and bring them back. 
From the bestselling author of Who Owns England?, this is a mesmerising chronicle of our forgotten rainforests - and an inspiring intervention to help restore them to the places they once were.
Shurbsole lovingly narrates the story of a vanishingly rare habitat that has been so ravaged, most people today don't realise it exists. Temperate rainforest may once have covered up to one-fifth of Britain and played host to a dazzling variety of luminous life-forms, inspiring Celtic druids, Welsh wizards, Romantic poets, and Arthur Conan Doyle's most loved creations.
Taking the reader on an awe-inspiring journey through the Atlantic oakwoods and hazelwoods of the Western Highlands and the Lake District, down to the rainforests of Wales, Devon and Cornwall, Guy maps these under-recognised ecosystems in exquisite detail - but underlines that without immediate political and public support, we risk losing them from the landscape, and perhaps our collective memory, forever.
