When Bob Salisbury and his wife Rosemary were nearing retirement, they moved back to County Tyrone from Nottinghamshire, bought a fifteen-acre site and started to build a house.

`It was when we first spent time on the land we now owned that Rosemary asked whether I noticed anything odd. Eventually I gave up. "There is no birdsong," she said. "In terms of wildlife this land is barren." She was absolutely right.'

This is the inspiring story of how the Salisburys - both enthusiastic but amateur gardeners - transformed an unloved rural wasteland into a thriving, renowned wildlife garden - home to lapwings, hares, yellowhammers, otters, woodcocks, bats and many other species that hadn't been seen in the area for years.

'The Field of Dreams' celebrates the Irish countryside and its wildlife with great warmth, humour and lightness of touch - and is a book that reminds us of the profound importance of maintaining a connection to the land.
