Product description

Review

Groom's enthusiasm is hard to resist, and his garnering of folklore and customs that, for centuries, guided life through the changing seasons bulges with fascination. --John Carey, Sunday Times



Wonderful and timely --Philip Hoare, Independent



It's no exaggeration to say that this is a volume I have been waiting for all my life... I love Nick Groom's passionate plea for us to be aware of traditional connections between human lives, the seasons and the natural world. He provides a cornucopia of knowledge, and an inspirational call to awareness... This is a rich celebration of traditions and a plea for them not to be forgotten. --Bel Mooney, Daily Mail



Beguiling... Unexpectedly fascinating --Spectator



If you want to learn about the political, religious and aesthetic imperatives that have shaped the calendar, and consider how we can remain connected to them, then you'll find The Seasons stimulating. It offers far more than trivia and contains details that demand to be shared. --Max Liu, Independent



A heartfelt exploration of the connections between the seasons and England's traditions and folklore brims with fascinating revelations. --Readers Digest

Book Description

A wonderful, and timely, celebration of the passing seasons and their significance, past, present and future. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
