Summary

Welcome to Oysterback – the sleepy town on Maryland’s Eastern Shore that’s been misplaced by mapmakers and forgotten by time. 
 
Once you find yourself in Oysterback, you may never want to leave. Nothing beats Desiree Grinch’s corn soup at the Blue Crab Tavern. There’s never a wait at The Curl Up ‘N Dye Salon de Beaute. In season, you can buy your produce (as you pay your respects) at Dreedle’s Funeral Parlor. There’s bingo every Tuesday at the V.F.D. The Mosquito Festival is next week. And when the moon hangs over Widgeon Marsh as full and yellow as one of Miss Nettie’s oyster fritters, you’ll know you’re in a place like no other.In The Oysterback Omnibus, author Helen Chappell compiles twenty years’ worth of Oysterback tales. As a bonus, she adds the latest social dispatches from the indispensable Oysterback Bugeye – which is published whenever there’s news, and not a day before.

    From getting back to nature with a tent, some matches and a few litres of bottled water, to enjoying a pub dinner and camping out in the garden afterwards, this book shows how to get stuck into wild camping in all its forms. Beautiful wildernesses; tiny budgets; environmentally-friendly… What's not to like? 
     
    There's an idea that wild camping is illegal in Britain, but it isn't – you just need to know the rules and where to go. This guide will open up this amazing experience for all, covering: 
     -       what is wild camping and why bother? 
     -       different types (bivvying, tenting, hammocking, on the water) 
     -       what the law says (Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, Wales, Ireland, EU, waterways) 
     -       how many of the largest landowners in the UK are actively encouraging wild camping  
     -       getting started (vital equipment, where to go, when to go, safety) 
     -       drinking water and foraging for food  
      
     The majority of the book features the best places to go in England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland, along with stories, tips, helpful maps and inspiring photos. The new edition includes a Foreword by Ed Stafford, as well as a completely new chapter introducing the exciting new English Coastal Path, opening 2020 after years of campaigning. This fully updated guide will give readers the knowledge and the inspiration to escape the noise, clutter and stress of day to day life and go wild.

    ‘A spacious walking meditation on place by an attentive and courageously permeable writer who has come to love this island as intensely as those of us bound to it by birth and ancestry and who has allowed its presence to inhabit and inform the quietly assured cadences of her verse and prose. Journeys of the spirit, landscapes of the mind and heart, symphony and silence, bone and blood and leaf and stone of country - from Cockle Creek to Albert Road, Moonah, Montrose to Mount Wellington, Bicheno to Cradle Mountain and beyond –-this carefully crafted collection of poetry and essays, earthed and numinous, bound by location and a particular lived experience but infinite in intimation, exhilarating and deeply restful, is a small jewel of a work.’ - Terry Whitebeach
