Product description

Review

"...a naturalist who can unfurl a sentence - poetry really - with the breathless ease of a master angler"
-- International Herald Tribune

"...this is beautiful as well as intelligent writing...a new naturalist to set beside the classics in our literature" -- The Evening Standard

"This beautiful book takes us to tree tops, beaches and mountains... in the company of a supremely lyrical writer" -- The Scotsman
