Written in exquisite prose, The Running Hare recalls an era before open-roofed factories and silent, empty fields, and records the ongoing destruction of the unique, fragile, glorious ploughland that exists just down the village lane. But it is also the story 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 demonstrates that it is still possible to create a place where the hare can rest safe.
