Seeing with new eyes,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crow Country (Paperback)
I first came across this book over 2 years ago and now have 2 copies; one for lending to others and one for myself. My own is filled with many many coloured tabs marking phrases, pages, sections that hook my attention and there are a huge amount of these through the whole book.
My interest is not just in the birds themselves, but equally in their profound attachment to place, their returning re-cycling seasonal habits and the places in which they are found.
Mark Cocker's use of language is the beautifully crafted hook that pulls the reader in to the depths of a deep misted walk in the fast dimming wintery light, building a real sense of being immersed in those places where he and the birds are so familiar.
Thoroughly recommended to make you look and see the familiar with new eyes.
