Meadowland

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In exquisite prose, John Lewis-Stempel records the passing seasons in an ancient meadow on his farm. His unique and intimate account of the birth, life and death of flora and fauna - from the pair of ravens who have lived there longer than he has to the minutiae underfoot - is threaded throughout with the history of the field, and recalls the literature of other observers of our natural history in a love song to the land that follows the tradition of Jeffries, Mabey and Deakin. John Lewis-Stempel is a writer and farmer. His many previous books include The Wild Life, England: the Autobiography, and the bestselling Six Weeks. He lives near Hay-on-Wye, on the borders of England and Wales, with his wife and two children. This book is in excellent condition, including the sleeve and hardback cover and appears unread. The name of the previous owner Philip Bromland is written in blue ink on top right corner of the inside page.
