Product description

Review

"He is the poet among modern ecologists, a natural philosopher who , whether he is writing about trees or rainbows, an iceberg or a piece of chalk, never takes a fact without linking it to an idea, or an idea without connecting it to a fact. His book dispenses information in the language of the imagination, and by peeling back the film by which everything appears dully familiar, reveals a vision of the world miraculously transfigured" (Michael Holroyd The Times)

"Collis' divine gift is to explain the extraordinary nature of the ordinary" (Sunday Times)

"A philosopher who had a shining view of the natural world, and was able to divine the magic inherent in phenomena so commonplace that we take them for granted" (Guardian)

"These jottings establish the man as one of the greatest recorders of English agricultural life" (Val Hennessey Daily Mail)

"A little classic" (The Oldie)
