Richard Mabey is out with a new book: Weeds and a reissue of Unofficial Countryside.
Richard Mabey is much better known in Britian, but he was a big influence on my thinking about marginal nature and he knows his plants.
Weeds: How Vagabond Plants Gatecrashed Civilisation and Changed the Way We Think About Nature
It gets two reviews in the Guardian with links to other works by Mabey http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/oct/09/weeds-vagabond-richard-mabey-review
One link is to the Unofficial Countryside reissue review in the Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/may/29/iain-sinclair-richard-mabey-rereading
