Product description

Unique, bold and intriguing, this book observes the intimate details of wildlife and the natural world, capturing the elusive soul of a place.

At the very end of the road is a six-bar metal gate. It is chained and padlocked and marks the exact line where the tarmac stops. Beyond that is a track, twelve pasture and hay fields, and an area of saltmarsh, bounded on one side by a river and on the other by vast tidal mudflats.

Deep in the west of England, this is a place sculpted by the wind and painted by the tides. It is a place full of wildlife. This immersive and carefully crafted book of place explores the impact of season and tides and weather upon this land at the edge through a series of literary pictures crafted through lyrical imaginative language.

Reviews:

A glorious reassertion of the importance of place and one of the purest nature books I have ever read. - Mark Cocker

He turns simple observations into something timeless and beautiful. - Stephen Moss

Only a writer with the closest ties to a landscape and its ecology can observe as he does; this is a hugely admirable piece of work, intelligent, sharp-eyed, individual and honest. - Richard Smyth

Extremely beautiful writing; up there with the best... brilliant descriptions of nature. - Geoff Hill
