You were never more lost than you are now, if you cannot reach out, touch the wild earth and weep…
Living wild on Dartmoor, a man eats only nettles for one year. His body disappears; he learns to fly. He encounters demigods and eloquent trees. He is Nettle-Eater.
“Rima Staines – the best illustrator of the realm of faërie, oak-smoked, sad-strung but vital, that I have ever seen.” - Jay Griffiths
