5.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly engaging and wonderfully written, 10 Oct. 2010
By 
This review is from: The Butterfly Isles: A Summer in Search of Our Emperors and Admirals (Hardcover)
Barkham brings the butterflies and the english countryside to life with his detailed and lively descriptions. From the first page you are willing him to find all 59 species, and you feel his anxiety as he sets out on yet another butterfly mission on wet summer's day.
Barkham recounts the importance these tiny, beautiful creatures have played in his life with humour (binoculars are not a good look), candour, and the passion of a true enthusiast. I know Barkham, and can tell you that yes, he does run off mid-conversation as soon as any butterfly flutters past. A wonderful read, with beautiful plates. A must for nature lovers and a fabulous gift.
