Product description

Review

A poetic style that is laced with BB's knowledgeable opinion on the natural world. An early Christmas treat for all. --The Field, December 2008

Whether finding old nests in winter hedgerows or searching Rockingham Forest for ancient monuments, it's the author s love of all things country that shines through. --Shooting Gazette, December 2008

Merlin Unwin has kept faith with the importance of design, giving this new edition enlarged print and a thoughtful layout. This collection of essays unlocks the secrets of the woods and fields and shows just what an acute observer of nature BB was. --Shooting Times, November 2008

This classic work shows the inimitable BB at his best, taking us gently through the changing year. He evokes the magic of the countryside in a way that no other author can. It is a book that every true countryman will treasure and read again and again. --Shooting and Conservation (BASC)

A new generation can now enjoy the fine prose and fine drawings. An unsurpassed delight. --This England

About the Author

Denys Watkins-Pitchford, or 'BB' as he is known, was born in 1905. He grew up in Northamptonshire, where he spent many hours out in the open air as ill health prevented him from being sent to boarding school. He studied art in Paris and at The Royal College of Art in London, and for seventeen years was art master at Rugby School. He was already illustrating books before he began to write under his pseudonym, 'BB'. The Sportsman's Bedside Book (1937) was the first to carry these now famous initials, followed by Wild Lone, the Story of the Pytchley Fox (1939) and Manka, The Sky Gypsy, The Story of a Wild Goose (1939). He was awarded the Carnegie Medal for The Little Grey Men (1941), the tale of the last gnomes in England, which established him in the forefront of literature for children. Many titles followed for both adults and children, and his reputation as a naturalist was further enhanced by his contributions to The Field, Country Life and Shooting Times. He died in 1990.
