"Uniquely observed through the eyes of a working countryman, The Woods Belong to Me brings the reader the nip of a February dawn and the smell of a drowsy hot July afternoon. Angus Nudds tells us of his life from a boyhood in Norfolk to head gamekeeper on a large estate on the Bedfordshire-Cambridgeshire border. He shares with us every aspect of nature in the woods, fields and hedgerows: the flowers, the small animals and wild birds which help to measure the ebb and flow of the seasons in the countryside." "I have always wished more keepers could write... Angus Nudds certainly can." (Jack Hargreaves, The Field). "This book is full of extraordinary wisdom..." (Ian Niall, Country Life). Chapters include:- Boyhood; Introduction to gamekeeping; Rothwell; Clarendon Park; Tetworth Hall; Foxes and pheasants; Postscript.
