From the publisher
From the earliest pagan sites to modern urban cemeteries, burial grounds have always
enjoyed a sacred, protected status in the history of society. Consequently they have become
tranquil oases in which wildlife can flourish - a microcosm of the natural habitat long since
disappeared from the surrounding area.
In Earth to Earth, Professor Stefan Buczacki uncovers the wild animals and plants that thrive
amongst the headstones, from the graveyard beetle to the mighty yew. He also explores the
history of churchyards and the landscape, as well as what can be done to conserve them
for future generations. Accompanied by specially commissioned illustrations by Felicity Price-Smith and selected
quotations, this beautiful gift book reveals the natural secrets to be found in God's Acre.
