Looking for an alternative way of living, Nick Weston left London to live in a treehouse and off the land in a secret location deep in the woods of mid-Sussex for six months. Wild in the Woods chronicles this amazing real life Boy's Own adventure - from the original construction of his tree-house - complete with hot shower, compost loo and double bed - to the planting of his vegetable patch. Practical information on every project undertaken, details of his delicious recipes and photographs are displayed throughout. Witness all of Nick's trials and errors and the highs and lows of treehouse. Best of all finishing his day with a glass of home brewed nettle beer and looking forward to the time when the elderflower champagne can be popped open! Wild in the Woods is an inspiring tale of how it is entirely possible to unplug from the rat race and live the dream off grid.
