Wild Life In a Southern Country by Richard Jefferies


When Richard Jefferies moved away from his family’s smallholding in north Wiltshire and settled in London to pursue a career as a writer, he began this breath-taking series of sketches which imagined every contour of the landscape he left behind: hedgerow, rookery, warren and copse. What emerges from his dazzling prose is his sense of wonder and the deep affection he felt for his home country.

Illustrations throughout by C. F. Tunnicliffe OBE RA and introduced by Richard Mabey.
