Product description

Review

‘…an inspiring example to future writers, and a gift to lovers of nature.’
The Times Literary Supplement

‘… a literary masterpiece, one of the 20th century’s outstanding examples of nature writing.’
Independent

‘The Peregrine should be known as one of the finest works on nature ever written'
BBC Wildlife

‘… some of the most marvellous prose of the twentieth century.’
Literary Review

‘A tour de force … what can I do except praise writing which involves all the senses? This book goes altogether outside the bird-book into literature.’
The Sunday Times

‘A rapt and remarkable book … his phrases have a magnesium-flare intensity.’
Observer

‘… what is certain is that The Peregrine is the most precise and poetic account of a bird – possibly of any non-human creature – ever written in English prose.’
The Daily Telegraph

‘J. A. Baker's poetic prose has a hard intensity and an exquisite lyric grace that takes it far beyond the stereotypical stuff of larks ascending and questing voles. Cruelly beautiful and brutally exact, it sees the countryside anew to give us nature in the wild and in the raw.’
The Scotsman
