Like one or two other reviewers,I wasn't familiar with Chris Yates before I read this.However,this fine work has persuaded me to delve deeper into the Chris Yates canon as he has the gift of being a natural nature writer. I've just read Kathleen Jamie's 'Seasons' which is in a similar vein to Chris's book. It's a tribute to the author that his book is very much on a par with Jamie's book.
Detailing an overnight ramble on a midsummers' night.The author describes his experiences in delicate prose.Occasionally delving into past experiences and reminiscences.
Here in the heart of the English countryside,Chris observes our native species in all their magic and mystery.A fine and uplifting work which will inspire others I'm sure,to look at our countryside with a fresh and almost child like perspective of the natural world.
