This is an engaging collection of essays on life in the countryside which was written in the 1930s and published in 1941 when that world had come to a close. "BB captures here in words and sensitive wood engravings the wonders of English wildlife and countryside". "BB describes himself as a hunter-naturalist-artist and in this rare and valuable combination we may well find the explanation of the minute observation displayed... the quiet simplicity of the wood engravings is peculiarly suited to the author's style". (The Times).
