A stunning piece of writing,
This review is from: Cold Blood: Adventures with Reptiles and Amphibians (Hardcover)
'Cold Blood' is a stunning piece of writing. The book merges detailed descriptions of Britain's reptiles and amphibians, with musings on our complex relationships with nature, and explores eco-criticism, anthropomorphism, and more... Threaded throughout all of this is a touching narrative describing Kerridge's childhood and his adolescence immersed in a world of snakes and newts. It really opened my eyes to the intricate landscapes beneath our feet. It's also worth saying that the book is beautifully produced, containing detailed reproductions of black and white etchings. It would make a wonderful present.
