'Superb. Totally fresh and vivid' - Chris Yates 'Deakin's account sings, as unruly and robust as the world he bore witness to ... Deakin's greatest gift is to make the ecologically minded life a matter of gleeful fun' Observer 'If anything this book is superior to Deakin's previous book Wildwood, which is saying something, since that was marvellous. The diary form works beautifully ... In just a few words, Deakin can delight and inspire in equal measure' - Tom Hodgkinson
From the Back Cover
'Very funny, sharp-eyed. To look at the world through Deakin's eyes was to see somewhere that was more wonderful than it often appears' Sunday Telegraph
For the last six years of his life, Roger Deakin kept notebooks in which he wrote his daily thoughts, impressions, feelings and observations about and around his home, Walnut Tree Farm. Collected here are the very best of these writings, capturing his extraordinary, restless curiosity about nature as well as his impressions of our changing world.
'Thoughtful and invigorating, full of humour, timeless . . . will take its place among the classics of Nature diaries . . . to be read alongside Frances Kilvert, Gilbert White, and Dorothy Wordsworth' Mail on Sunday
'Gentle, straight, honest, inquisitive, funny, melancholic' Spectator
'So busy and bustling with life' Observer
'A secular saint' The TimesSee all Product description

Roger Deakin was an author, broadcaster and film-maker, as well as being a founder director of Common Ground, the environmental and arts charity. He restored and lived in Walnut Tree farm from 1974 until his death in 2006. Waterlog was published by Deakin in 1999. Wildwood was published posthumously in 2007, followed by Notes from Walnut Tree farm in 2008. Edited by Alison Hastie and Terence Blacker, the contents are taken from Deakin's copious notebooks.
I find Deakin's work compulsive, immersive and immensely pleasurable to read. Notes from Walnut Tree farm forms an addendum to a great life and to the other two literary masterpieces that precede it.
