A Natralist's Pilgrimage

£10.99

Product description

First Edition 1926

Condition: Good - Previous Owner pasted on inside front binding, some foxing and staining to a few pages
Dust Jacket: No dust jacket
Dimensions:250x170x50mm

MR. KEARTON'S reminiscences are told with delightful simplicity. Perhaps his profession as a lecturer on natural history has made him alert to the value- of straightforward and colloquial speech. No doubt, too, he took some of the good, fresh earth into his nature from his youth on a farm in York- shire. However that may be, the writing is always vivid and natural. The account of his early days is the most interesting part of his book. He gives an excellent picture of the gruff and hearty peasantry of his childhood, and his remarks upon sheep-washing, trout-tickling, drain-digging
